Cranberry Sauce

In preparation for the holidays, many of us decide to pick up a can of Ocean Spray cranberry sauce to save on time in the kitchen. Believe me the thought crossed my mind, it was a fleeting thought though because: that cranberry sauce is absolutely nutritionally void.

Evidence:

  • Ingredients: Cranberries, glucose-fructose, glucose, water.
  • Nutritional content (1/4 cup): 24g sugar, 0% vitamin A, 0% Vitamin C, 0% calcium, 0% iron

= nutritionally void

I rest my case.

Guaranteed, everyone can spare 20 minutes to make fresh cranberry sauce. You don’t have to baby sit it either. So in the end it will take up 5 minutes of your time tops. It tastes absolutely amazing. So much so that I ended up eating the leftovers on my hot cereal in the morning, right out of the jar, and finally, mixed in with a fruit salad.
