Low Carb Keto Sugar Free Cranberry Sauce
I've come here today to give a eulogy for canned cranberry sauce.
Or as Zoolander might put it, a eugoogley. (below)
Once you make your own sugar free cranberry sauce, you will never go back to those sugary can shaped monstrosities that pass themselves off as cranberry sauce. They could never compete with the recipe I'm about to share. It's got four ingredients, comes together in 10 minutes, and tastes divine.
Oranges are frowned upon in low carb circles, but we've got an orange cheat for this recipe.
We'll use orange zest to give the sauce a lovely citrus note, but without any extra carbs. This is a recipe that can totally pass for normal cranberry sauce. Bring it to Thanksgiving and no one will be the wiser.
So RIP Canned Cranberry Sauce. We barely knew ye.
