This is an excellent cranberry sauce that is good year round. Buy cranberries in November or December and freeze them so that you can make this sauce throughout the year. The prepared sauce freezes very well.

The best. This seems like work but it makes a ton of cranberry sauce and it makes lots of nice little packets for the freezer. What a treat to pull one out to supplement a meal outside of the holiday season!! I will make this again and again. Read More

Excellent cranberry salad. Switched to this recipe a few years back from the cranberry fluff. Easy to make keeps well. Make sure you use 16 ounces of cranberries. Most store packages are 12 ounce now.I also cut down the sugar to 1 1/2 cups. Read More

I haven't tried this recipe yet - sounds very good. I was a little confused whether to use fresh cranberries? It just seemed to me that they needed to be cooked first? Please let me know if anyone has tried the recipe. Thanks so much! Read More
