“I love cranberry sauce and am always looking for good recipes without all that sugar that alters your blood sugar. I came across a recipe in the Nov. 2009 issue of bon appetit and altered it to fit my needs. It turned out so good that I am deciding to share it with all of you and hope you enjoy it as much as I do. I know it sounds different but it is amazing...just give it a try!”
