I've made this cranberry sauce for the past 5-7 or 8 years now (think it came from Bon Appetit magazine). It's the best sauce around! I've tried a number of others from Epicurious.com and this is the one I keep coming back to. Read More

After reading the other reviews I got creative with the vinegar. I used 1/4 cup balsamic (a really nice aged one that's fairly thick and sweet) and then 1/8 cup each of raspberry vinegar and pomegranate vinegar. I omitted the orange as I don't care for it in cranberry sauce. I made it just now as a dry run before Thursday and this stuff is simply divine. I would give it more stars if I could and it is going to be our cranberry sauce from now on. Many thanks to Christine! Read More

This was a simple quick recipe and the results were delicious. I was a little concerned about the vinegar. I didn't want it to taste like vinegar and it certainly can overwhelm a dish sometimes. I also discovered that I didn't have raspberry vinegar so I used red wine vinegar. I used 1/4 of a cup since it wasn't the right kind and I didn't have a completely full bag of cranberries. I left out the orange zest since I don't like orange flavor in anything. The cinnamon stick was perfect! It made our Jan. 29th Fakesgiving a hit. Read More

This recipe is a super twist on regular cranberry sauce! I was a bit skeptical about it; the raspberry vinegar gave the sauce an odd smell as it cooked. But after the first bite I was convinced: this is my go-to recipe from now on! Read More

Wonderful! I'm always looking for a good cranberry sauce recipe. I doubled the recipe (was cooking for a crowd) but probably shouldn't have doubled the raspberry vinegar. It ended up tasting a little too strongly of vinegar but was still very good. I will definitely make it again! Read More

This is great and so easy!! I added some freshly grated ginger and left out the cinnamon stick (because I didn't have any) and it's delicious! Read More

I first tried this recipe 6 years ago. Everyone LOVES this cranberry sauce even those that have never liked cranberry sauce. My step-mom and I began canning this recipe to give as gifts during the holidays and also so we can have it throughout the year. We didn't have to make any changes. Read More
