You must use real Maple Syrup. It makes a big difference in the recipe. I made this exactly as written and this is the best Cranberry sauce that I have come across in 50 years. You can also freeze this sauce. I used 1 and 2 cup glass pyrex dishes with tight lids. This is now my favorite cranberry sauce and I make big batches around Thanksgiving (when I can get fresh cranberries) freeze it and enjoy it all year. Thaw it out in the refrigerator NOT the microwave! Read More

Easy to make simple tasty. I didn't use the brandy but I followed everything else exactly. I ended up adding an extra half a tablespoon of brown sugar but I don't know if that is always needed. Taste it first to be sure then add small amounts if it is a little too bitter. I'll use this recipe again. Read More

Love this! I have to be careful not to eat too much before Thanksgiving. I left out the lemon and the brown sugar and decreased to water to 1/2 cup for more intense maple flavor. I had just made a fresh loaf of sourdough and put this on a slice with butter so good! Also be sure to use real maple syrup! Read More

This tasted good but i couldn't taste the difference using the maple syrup verses sugar. So for cost reasons I would just use sugar. Added chopped walnuts. Read More
