Fresh cranberries look so gorgeous. You can add them to your salads or preserve them in the freezer. They are low in sugar, and their tartness is usually balanced by adding sugar, which also adds a lot of empty calories. Apple and dates in right amounts can sweeten the cranberries while retaining their tartness. Cranberries provide a small amount of vitamin C.
