This is a variation on classic, fresh Ocean Spray® cranberry sauce! My grandma has made it for years and people who don't like cranberry sauce request that I make this at our events! It's different and great! This is a nice change of pace. and I've yet to meet anyone who doesn't like it! Tastes best if stored in refrigerator overnight.

Tried this while still warm--awesome! I did add a dash of salt. I made a half recipe using an 8 oz can of crushed pineapple that needed using up. Thanks for sharing your grandma's recipe! Read More

absolutely wonderful! I typically do not like cranberry sauce but am a fan when combined with other fresh ingredients. This version is the best by far as I love pineapples! I used organic cane sugar in place of white sugar and used 2 cans of crushed pineapple which gave me 2 cups of pineapple juice for the syrup base. I used 3/4 of the remaining crushed pineapple and this dish was spectacular. Will be a favorite for many years to come! Read More

Was easy & will definitely make again. I used 2 small cans of crushed pineapple and juice from small can of mandarin oranges. Chopped up the mandarin oranges & added about 1/2 of the can of oranges when adding in the pineapple. By adding mandarin orange juice didn't need to add water to make a cup of liquid. Was a big hit - people were gobbling it up!! Read More

This is a simple and different type of cranberry sauce but we were happy to try it... it's very tasty. The only thing we did slightly different is that we used crushed pineapple and we added about 2 tablespoons of honey. We also doubled the recipe to can some for the winter! We got a nice bowl full for Thanksgiving three jelly jars and 2 pints out of the double recipe. Read More
