Vanilla Cream with Cranberry Sauce, THM FP, Sugar-free, Gluten-free

It’s that time of year again when cranberries are harvested and are readily available to purchase at our local groceries stores. These tart red berries are a native of North America and are considered a superfood! Cranberries are high in antioxidants and a good source of vitamins.

Cranberries do freeze very well. You can just pop the bags into ziploc bags and freeze. I have frozen cranberries for up to a year or more and they still are good.

This simple dessert is low in fat and carbs which makes it just perfecte when you need a little something to fill you up! I keep a few of these little jars in the fridge all the time right now.

A few fun facts about cranberries…the harvest in 2017 was 905 millions pounds with Wisconsin the leading producing state. Only 5% of the cranberries are sold fresh. The remaining 95% are processed into juice, juice blends, ect. There are only 3 native fruits to North America and the cranberries is one of them. Americans consume over 400 million pounds of cranberries with 20% of them in Thanksgiving week!

You may wonder what kind of jars I am using. I am repurposing yogurt jars and just love to use them. You can even purchase lids that snap on but I just cover the jars with plastic wrap.
