This raw cranberry sauce is a delicious way to enjoy the powerful healing benefits of cranberries around the holiday season.
Around the holidays, I always like to enjoy traditional dishes but in healthier ways.
This recipe for raw cranberry sauce, also called cranberry relish, is an amazing way to enjoy this traditional dish during the winter holidays.
It’s made with fresh cranberries and the juice of an orange. It is sweetened with maple syrup (no artificial sweeteners here!). And, it’s spiced with nutmeg and cloves.
Sounds delicious, right?! Truly, this is such a wonderful way to get the flavors and taste of cranberry sauce in the most healthy and nutritious way possible.
Also, it is super easy to make! You just add all the ingredients to a blender or food processor. If you prefer more sweetness, you are welcome to add more maple syrup.
Not only can this be used as a cranberry sauce, but it can also be used as a cranberry relish. Perfect as a topping on gluten-free crackers or on sandwiches.
You could also use it as a topping on oatmeal or a spread on pancakes or waffles. Additionally, you could even make a day-after-Thanksgiving veggie burger with this as the cranberry relish. Yum!
