For me, it just isn’t the holidays without homemade cranberry sauce on the table. My brand new recipe contains only healthy ingredients and is Paleo and Whole30 compliant. I use dates as the main sweetener, but if you like your cranberry sauce tart then simply remove the dates.
I added crushed pineapples along with a small diced red apple to give it a little extra flavor. Not only did it turn out amazing, but it also made my house smell like Christmas. Homemade cranberry sauce is so much better than going and buying the store bought canned version and this recipe doesn’t take a ton of ingredients.
This recipe can be done under 15 mins and can serve as part of your meal and your potpourri, It’s a win-win. Simply top with lemon zest before serving and you have yourself the BEST EVER homemade cranberry sauce that will look perfect on your holiday table.
This sauce can also come in handy after the holidays if you have leftovers. I love adding leftover ham to a lettuce wrap and covering it with this sauce. It is so good and simple. In addition I love adding some to my creamy chicken salad. I know it might sound weird, but it is seriously so delicious.
