Low Carb Jalapeno Cranberry Sauce Recipe
I don’t know about you but I love a side of tangy cranberry sauce next to my turkey on Thanksgiving dinner. Traditional cranberry sauces are sweetened with sugar or syrups, but this keto holiday recipe for cranberries uses erythritol or monk fruit as a sweetener - making this a sugar free cranberry sauce.
You could stop there and just have sweet and tangy cranberry sauce, but I went a step further and added some spice. One minced jalapeno adds a little heat to this keto cranberry sauce. The combination is fabulous, especially when spread all over the roated turkey!
Are Cranberries Keto?
One cup of fresh cranberries has 8 g net carbs in it; however, most people don’t eat one cup of cranberries in one sitting. Especially since traditionally cranberry sauce is used as a garnish or condiment on Thanksgiving or the holiday dinner table.
Cranberries are high in Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and Vitamin K. They also contain proanthrocyanidins which are antioxidants.
I love adding spicy flavors to my holiday dishes. I must have horseradish with my prime rib and a spicy cranberry sauce with my turkey. If you love spicy foods too, you will love this low carb cranberry sauce.
If you want to punch up the heat even more, cosider adding more mined jalapenos or 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper!
Cranberry Sauce Storage
This is a keto holiday side dish that can be made days ahead of time. Store this spicy cranberry sauce in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
