This wonderful and simple cranberry sauce is my grandmother's recipe. We had it every year at Thanksgiving and Christmas, and I predict you will have people begging for more.

I think this recipe is great. The consistency is kind of like applesauce so after I was done I chopped 1/4 more of an apple and some pecans really small and mixed in to give it a little more bite. Thanks for the recipe delicious! Read More

I made this sauce a day before Thanksgiving and it was delicious. On the next day when I try it was very bitter taste from the skin of an orange. I will not recommend to add the orange with the rind but get rid of the white part from the rind and maybe it will improve the bitterness. Read More

Very good recipe! I do omit the apple out of personal preference. I also make a point of cutting out the white pith from the orange. Read More

Not often do I give five stars but this relish is deserving. I love how simple it is no need to cook. I made as stated in the recipe but after a few pulses on my Cuisinart I took about a cup out and pulsed the rest to make finer. Adding the coarser chopped back in give it nice texture. I made to serve with turkey but had to give it a try on crackers and cream cheese as a snack. Don t skip the pecans! Read More

I would definitely not add the whole orange again and I'd add more sugar. It was quite bitter. However I like the idea of not cooking it so I will give it another try at some point. Read More
