This is the best fresh cranberry recipe I have. It is very sweet and has a very attractive visual appeal.

I will definitely make again! A few suggestions: (1) Use half the sugar. 3 cups was plenty. (2) Toast the walnuts in a toaster oven, the oven or pan to bring out the flavor. Next time I may give it a splash of orange liqueur like Grand Marnier, although it was delicious as is. Read More

Using 6 cups of sugar makes this too sweet. I had to add another quart of Cranberries. The flavor is good but it's too watery. Read More

This is the best recipe. It tastes great looks great and is easy to prepare. You can substitute with mandarin oranges and get a little different look and a little sweeter too. Read More

Easy delicious and beautiful. Guests are impressed with "real" cranberry conserve as opposed to that yukky stuff from a can. Read More

I've tried a new cranberry recipe every Thanksgiving for about the last 8 years and this is definitely the best I've tried. It is also the first one that people have asked for the recipe. The only change I would make is that I would use less water. The recipe doesn't give an exact amount and since cranberries float I used too much. Read More

Great flavor. yet as stated before it was too thin. The only thing that I might do next time is to add a little Port wine (didn't have any) to cut the sweetness just a bit. Read More

Very good especially for raisin-lovers! I halved the recipe because it makes so much and people are really finicky once they think it's "just" cranberry sauce. It's hard to get them to try it; this one does NOT have the really acidic flavor of many cranberry sauce recipes however. I did cook it "down" for longer than directions say. Read More
