Delicious! I am not normally into cranberries but this is yummy. I tweaked it just a little used fresh ginger frozen sweetened cherries(who can find fresh cherries during Thanksgiving?) less sugar and a little honey. Can't wait until dinner! Read More

I am not sure if the recipe is printed wrong or not but the cinnamon was way too overwhelming. It was to the point that it was all you can taste. I loved the idea of the wine and cherries (which I also had to buy the frozen). Read More

I made this for Thanksgiving this year. Its "insanely easy" and tasted great. I did reduce the amount of cinnamon from 2 T to 2 tsp after reading other reviews on this recipe and it was perfect! Next I want to try and add a can of mandarin oranges possibly trying in some crepes for our Friendsgiving brunch. It was liquidy when I finished the 45 minutes on the stove top which scared me but it gelled perfectly after refrigeration. I was actually requested to make this again for next Thanksgiving. Def 5 Stars! Read More

This is very good cranberry sauce. It was a bit high on cinnamon for me but my family did like it. This recipes make a large quantity - so there were a lot of leftovers - a little too many left overs. The wine is a nice tough though. I also used dried cherries as fresh cherries are tough to come by in Pennsylvania in the winter. Read More
