  1. In a medium saucepan, stir together sugar, maple syrup, rum, lime zest and lime juice. After bringing to a boil, reduce heat and stir until sugar is dissolved.
  2. Stir in cranberries and simmer on medium-low uncovered for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

I made this cranberry sauce this past Thanksgiving, and my aunt declared it "the best cranberry sauce she's ever had" so...yeah it's pretty awesome.

I had to make these "paleo-friendly" and substituted coconut sugar for regular sugar. They were still just as delicious

I have been enjoying this for the past few Thanksgivings/Christmases, made by the creator. It is DELICIOUS and a welcomed tradition!!
