Most people would agree cranberry sauce is a decadent way to top off your plate on Thanksgiving or other holiday get-togethers. After all, that sweet, tart, pucker in your mouth sauce pairs just as well with Tofurky, stuffing, and potatoes as it does with apple or pumpkin pie or even Brussels sprouts. It has a magical way of making everything it touches taste just a little bit better.
But if you’re only eating it on holidays, you’re missing out on lots of essential health benefits of cranberries. Cranberry sauce is one of the healthiest foods you can eat, not only during the holidays, but all year long. Here’s why, and how to enjoy it all the way into next fall.
