Tangy Cranberry Sauce

Kristina Turner


Use the cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving and Christmas. You can use the cranberry sauce as a filling for my Czech Kolache or Gluten Free Czech Kolache recipes that I posted. It makes it to where the sweet yeast rolls have the cranberries in the center. Use coconut palm sugar that you can find at a health food store for a lower glycemic index for diabetics or to be healthier.
