Cranberry Sauce with Bourbon

Rated as 4.71 out of 5 Stars

"This is my mother's recipe. Each year, she would make this for an auction. Her sauce usually sold for $12.00 an 8-ounce jar! Tastes best when it has had time to sit, for example, 2 weeks. The longer it sits, the stronger the flavours."

This has always been one of my favorites. Sometimes I cut the sugar to 3 cups for a slightly tarter flavor. Also works with brandy if you're out of bourbon.

Delish!

Bourbon & cranberry converted my mother. My mother swears by and only eats canned cranberry. I used a variation of this recipe and now she makes my version every year. Actually the whole fa...

I used half the sugar, some brown sugar (combine less than 2 c, and washed pecans. Very popular!

Good flavor, but too runny for me.

My son is a distiller and I wanted to use his whiskey in a recipe for Thanksgiving. This was very easy and so tasty. I think it will become a regular at our Thanksgiving table.

Oh my goodness! This is wonderful! I cut the sugar down by a smidgen - maybe by a tablespoon. It is very thick, don't overcook. I'm a big fan of Jack Daniels and used it. It was a huge hit at ou...
