Sweet cranberry sauce is a classic condiment that is often served with Thanksgiving and Christmas meals in the United States. It is made by cooking fresh or frozen cranberries with sugar and water until they burst and thicken into a sauce. Additional flavorings, such as orange zest, cinnamon, or nutmeg, may also be added.
Nutritionally, cranberries are a good source of vitamin C, fiber, and antioxidants. However, sweet cranberry sauce is typically high in sugar, with added sugars accounting for most of its calories. Therefore, it should be consumed in moderation as part of a balanced diet.
Sweet cranberry sauce can be served with a variety of dishes, including roasted meats, and sandwiches, and as a topping for desserts like cheesecake or ice cream. Homemade cranberry sauce is easy to make and can be customized to your taste preferences by adjusting the amount of sugar and other flavorings.
