Great recipe I've made this sauce for nearly 20 years as soon as I find the berries in the market. Packed into sterile jars it's great to share during the upcoming holidays. Be sure to cover the heavier the pan - the better and I add chopped navel orange peel which candies somewhat. The brandy should be added when it's hot and just finished baking. Don't stir just pour over the top. The alcohol evaporates off and the berries plump up with the syrup from the liquid. Don't double the recipe make it twice. Enjoy & share! Read More

I could not figure this out. All the sugar dried and hardened like cement on bottom of casserole dish. Would like to try again...need some advice. Read More

This recipe was easy to make and it tasted great. Since I'm not a big fan of alcohol(and I had kids over for dinner and didn't want to get them buzz) I used 1/3 cup of apple juice and 1 tablespoon of brandy and it turned out just right Read More

Homerun!!! This recipe is YUMMY and EASY!!! Everytime I take it somewhere people ask for the recipe. I made this sauce as well as the brandied orange cranberry sauce from allrecipes.com and this one was the overwhelming favorite....and so much easier to make. This will be my standard cranberry sauce from now on. Read More

I absolutely love this recipe! It has become a tradition for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Unique and so simple. I love the addition of brandy. It's quite sweet so I cut back on the sugar by 1/2 cup. Read More

So easy and delicious. I substituted Splenda for Sugar and 1/3 c. apple juice 1 oz. cherry brandy (kirchwasser) for the brandy. AND I made it the night before Thanksgiving. It was the perfect blend of tart and sweet. Read More

I like the simplicity of this recipe- throw everything in a pan in the oven and stir a lot. I decreased the sugar because I like the tart taste and left out the brandy because one of my guests dislikes the taste of alcohol in food. In its place I used a little bit of lime extract about halfway through the baking process. The simplicity and flavor were great my only issue was that its so hard to clean the dish afterwards because all the sugar bakes (crystallizes) onto the sides. Next time I will probably try all the same ingredients but just do it on the stove at a lower heat for a longer time and see if that works any better. Read More

Awesome. My favorite cranberry sauce ever. If you like cranberries there's really no way you won't like this. I make it at least twice a year. No more canned cranberry sauce around here. Read More
