This is really easy to do and my family loves it warm or chilled.

Maybe I just don't like holiday sauce, but this was too tart for me. I made it for Christmas dinner and I noticed it was left on many people's plates. I don't think I'll make this again unless...

I made this for Christmas and everyone loved it..even my husband who hates cranberries. Very easy and you can make while the turkey is resting.
