Becky's mom's recipe is so good that even anyone who says they do not like cranberries will love it! This sauce is fantastic. It should be made at least 2 weeks before use. However, I've made it the day before and it was still really good.

This was very good! I added 1/2 cup orange juice and 1/2 tsp. orange extract. If there was a fresh orange I would have grated some orange rind into the mixture. Cheated and cooked it on the top of the stove for about 20-30 minutes on a low heat stirring often. Read More

I love Grand Marnier so I was tickled to find this recipe. I made it a week ago and pulled it out to "taste" before the big day and I was disappointed to not taste that rich Grand Marnier flavor. Maybe I will try this with more G.M. next time Read More

Very good. I did not have orange juice so I used the juice of one orange and some zest. I divided the sugar for 1/2 cup brown sugar and 3/4 white sugar. Also didnot have Grand Marnier but used Orange Triple Sec liqueur. Baked in oven for 1 -1/2 hours at 275 in a taller cast iron pan. Other recipes mentioned boiling over but with the lower temp higher sided pan I did not have any issues. At the end I used a potato masher to create thickness. We used the cranberry sauce to mix with BBQ sauce over left over Turkey. It was very awesome! Read More

Very nice little recipe. I decided to make it on the stove top right before my turkey was done cooking hence I had no room for it in the oven. I used around 7 oz of Triple sec and it turned out quite nice and it only took around 20-30 minutes to get it to the desired consistency. My husband really liked it and wants me to make it again for Christmas. Read More

I do not even like cranberry sauce but my husband insisted he had to have it. This is by far the BEST cranberry sauce I have ever had. Had some leftover and made cranberry oat bars. Recipe is perfect as is. Read More
