The typical can of jellied cranberry sauce yields 110 calories and 21 grams of sugar per serving and even though it’s delicious, it’s also pretty boring at this point. Even the fancy classic cranberry sauce you make at home is getting fusty. Let’s take a break from tedious Thanksgiving, shall we? The typical Thanksgiving side dish doesn’t have to be like that. It doesn’t even have to be traditional.
