Low-Sugar Orange-Ginger Cranberry Sauce
I briefly forgot how incredibly easy it is to make your own cranberry sauce. I couldn’t resist buying a bag of beautiful red cranberries during Thanksgiving season. As I’ve been trying to eat little to no added sugar lately, I wanted to make a low-sugar cranberry sauce. This version of low-sugar orange-ginger cranberry sauce is tart but we love the flavor to perk up the muted taste of turkey. You can, of course, always add more maple syrup to taste.
