Festive Cranberry Sauce

To me, nothing says Christmas dinner quite like a dollop of cranberry sauce! This is a super easy way to add a healthy holiday touch to your dog's meals in December. Depending on your location, cranberries are local, in season and widely available in December.

Basic Ingredients:

  1. 1 cup of whole cranberries

  2. 4 Tablespoons of water

  3. 1 Teaspoon of cinnamon

 

Steps:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan.

  2. Put the lid on the pot and simmer on very low temperature for 15-20 minutes or until the berries have turned to sauce, stirring frequently.

  3. Thin with extra water if the mixture is too thick. 

  4. Store in the fridge for up to 2 days or freeze into tiny molds until ready to use.

Nutrition Tips:

  • Cranberries are quite tart and not every dog will enjoy them, so please respect your dog's taste preferences! 

  • Try adding a half teaspoon to your dog's food as a special holiday garnish.

  • Cranberries are low in sugar and calories, but high in fiber and antioxidants. This sauce is concentrated so only add a tiny bit to your dog's food to avoid tummy upset.

  • Cranberries are often recommended to promote good bladder health.
