Health Benefits of Cranberries

Not only are cranberries delicious, offering a special combination of sweet and tart, but they are good for you too. Boasting high antioxidant and nutrient content, these berries have been linked to a lessened risk of UTIs, along with improved immune function, lower blood pressure and preventing some types of cancer.

    I am seriously never going to buy grocery store cranberry sauce again. I loved this so much. I made it ahead and tasted just as good 2 days after making (long story, we had a sudden change of plans, but it just goes to show the alcohol helps this one keep well!)
