Cranberry is high in antioxidants, which detoxifies free radicals. It is also rich in beta-carotene, a liver restorative and blood alternative. This recipe includes a sweetener, which reduces cranberries' astringency. Pungent ginger opposes the cold quality of the cranberry, warming the flavors and making the sauce digestible for all.
