© Copyrighted 1997-2010

The nice thing about this recipe is that because cranberries have their own unique flavor, salt has never been required for a great sauce. Even canned cranberry sauce has no salt added to it. This recipe is straight off a package of Ocean Spray cranberries. Nutrient values here are directly from USDA figures. Diabetics may replace the sugar measure for measure with Splenda.
