This was an easy cranberry sauce to put together and had good flavor. I think you will have to adjust to taste and watch the liquids you put into the cranberries. "Water to Cover" and "Juice of 2 Oranges" can vary greatly depending on the size of the pan you use and the size of your oranges or the amount of juice the orange produces. Mine actually simmered down quickly so I had to add a little more equal amounts of water and juice. It was also a little sweet for us so I would start with a little less sugar taste & adjust accordingly. Read More

Absolutely yummy! The combination of the sugar and orange juices and zest makes this so flavorful. Reduced quantities to make 6 servings; even with 18 guests there isn't need for more - our New Mexico family roots love Red and Green Chile "gravy" more than cranberry sauce LOL! Read More
