Cranberries, the Real Stuff

Ditch the canned cranberry sauce! It’s full of sugars, high fructose corn syrup, and other chemicals. Fresh cranberries are full of Vitamin C, natural anti-inflammatories, and antioxidants, and are very easy to prepare.

I like fresh cranberry relish, very easy with a food processor. Wash and sort your cranberries, and 2 or 3 oranges, cut your oranges into 1/4’s, rinds and all, run it all through your food processor a bit at a time, add raw sugar or apple juice to taste. This also makes amazing turkey sandwiches!

You can also mix your cranberries with 4 Tbsp. pure honey, 2 tsp. lemon juice, 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon and 2 medium apples, cut up, run this through a food processor as well.

Stick to fresh cranberries whenever possible, dried cranberries often have a lot of sugar. These recipes are beautiful, homemade, and because they are raw preserve all their natural nutrition. Happy Holidays!
