Holiday Cranberry-Pomegranate Sauce

Holiday Cranberry-Pomegranate Sauce

Alice C. 0

"This is a wonderful variation on traditional cranberry sauce for your holiday dinners. It's very easy to make, and my family insists upon it every Thanksgiving and more! It is also a great base for a glaze on your Holiday Ham. For a summer cranberry salad, simply add sliced strawberries, mango, oranges, pineapple, or whatever strikes your fancy!"

Healthful choice with the added texture of pomegranate seeds is a fantastic holiday "cranberry sauce". My family raved and I've made it just because. I made the recipe just as is.

The cinnamon was very overpowering, but I was able to fix it with some lime juice and added lime slices to garnish (see photo) and it turned out splendidly. It was the first dish to run out at T...
