This recipe was very easy to make and tasted wonderful! If you cannot locate fresh cranberries it is just as wonderful with frozen cranberries. Just make sure you defrost them before you begin cooking. Read More

Loved this! I'm always looking for something a bit different when it comes to "cranberry sauce" and this one filled the bill. It made enough that I was able to make a "cranberry chicken" dish with it as well. Use your imagination or maybe I'll submit it here!! Read More

Good easy recipe. I didn't have golden raisins so I used regular ones but I think it would be better w/ golden raisins next time. Read More

Exactly what I was looking for. Excellent with the Thanksgiving turkey. Makes for a nice "chutney" with pork and I LOVE it with ham! Read More

I originally printed this recipe on 11/19/05 obviously for that Thanksgiving. I haven't bought canned cranberry sauce for four years now. How can something this easy taste this good. The only adjustment made was in the proportion of sugar as we use fructose. It freezes beautifully too as the college student daughter can attest. Read More

Really very good. I dont like things too sweet so I may cut the sugar to 2/3 cup next time. I will use the leftover sauce for apple crumble (see allrecipes.com). Read More
