Made just a half batch and added 1/3 cup chopped walnuts to it. This is just excellent mixed 50/50 with cream cheese pineapple spread and spread on celery sticks. Try it you'll like it!! Good as a side with baked ham. Will try later with chicken. Read More

I made this for my family Christmas gathering. No one liked it because it was very tart no matter what I added. I tried adding just the powder from a jello mix but no luck. Way too tart. Read More

An unique alternative to traditional cranberry sauce. I've made this a number of times now and always get much praise for this recipe. Note: Important to refrigerate overnight to let flavours blend well. Read More

My Dad was looking for a recipe like Grandma used to make at Thanksgiving. This was it!! I couldn't believe how much sugar it took...but you really do need that much for it not to be bitter. Read More

Love this recipe. Changed the sugar to Splenda (1 1/3 cups) to make lower calorie. Read More

Everyone loved this with their holiday turkey. People asked for seconds and thirds (never saw anyone do that for cranberry sauce from a can). As others suggested we prepared this a day in advance. Leaving it in the fridge overnight gave the sugar granules time to break down and blend in. We tasted the relish just after preparing it and the sugar was gritty between our teeth. The next day it was perfect. This recipe yielded much more than was needed so I've been stirring a little into my plain yogurt each morning. Read More

This is just based on what I think it would be like......Perhaps a crazy question but do I cook the cranberries first or use them "raw" out of the bag? Read More

Very tasty and gets better when it sits a little longer. I made evening of the 23rd for Christmas dinner. Added a dash of ground cinnamon and ground ginger along with 1/2 cup walnuts.. delicious! Read More

Only used 1 cup sugar and skipped the celery. Everyone loved it and thought it was better than Mom's. Read More
