Did you grow up eating canned cranberry sauce too? WHY does that even exist?! Once I realized that fresh, REAL, sugar-free, healthy cranberry sauce was 6 ingredients and took 15 minutes I never looked back!
You with me?
Holiday season is officially here 🙂 🙂 Halloween is a week away and I’m almost finished planning my Thanksgiving menu. I have a list of awesome craft projects & recipes to post on my blog this season. I can’t wait to share! The next two weeks I’m focusing on healthy Holiday dishes, warm drinks and spiced cocktails. Thanksgiving side dish recipes, slow-cooker apple cider, & champagne cocktails are currently on my to-do list.With the extra cranberries I had from making this recipe, I cooked up a big batch of Slow-Cooker Cranberry Apple Cider. It is SO simple and wow- the smell of our house while the apples and spices simmered in the slow cooker. WOW WOW WOW!

- Combine all of the ingredients together in a saucepan over medium-high heat.
