This pretty dish is a staple at our household every Thanksgiving. I, for one, am not a big fan of cranberry sauce, so I like innovative cranberry dishes that break away from the ordinary canned stuff. If I can also make them more carb-friendly, that’s a double score! That’s why this recipe makes an appearance every year at our house.
