Cranberry sauce was always my dad’s specialty on Thanksgiving. Like me, he loved to smother turkey in it. I prefer a nice sweet cranberry sauce over tarter, more citrusy varieties. Naturally, this poses a calorie issue since sugar = calories. Luckily, there’s agave nectar, which is both a low-glycemic sweetener and much sweeter than sugar, so you need less of it overall. This is my dad’s same recipe, I’ve just replaced the sugar with agave nectar. Enjoy!
