I made this for my family at Thanksgiving. It was good, but I found that about 3/4 cup of both sugars was better as the 1/2 cup was quite tart. Will use again for Christmas!

This is so simple to make. I used OJ instead of water, as suggested by others, but cut the amount by 1/4 c. Also threw in a handful of dried cherries and a chopped apple. Yum!

This is the BEST cranberry sauce I've ever had! It was recommended by a friend who made it on Thanksgiving- she said it was the best she ever had too!

I made a from-scratch Christmas dinner, and used this recipe. It was a complete hit, and all my guests thought I slaved over it. It was so tasty and so easy, I'm now adding it to my recipe box...

Very easy to make and turns out yummy! I used a strainer and mashed the berries to make jellied cranberry sauce. It was very tart, as cranberries are.

This was wonderful!! After removing foam, I mashed the berries slightly. So much better than canned! Thanks!

Everyone really liked this recipe and commented on how nice it was not to have canned jelly cranberries. Thanks for sharing.

This recipe is easy and taste great!! To bad my silly husband prefers his cranberry sausce in the shape of a can.

AWESOME & perfect homemade recipe. Try adding some pumpkin pie spice to the mixture (cinnamon, clove, ginger & nutmeg), tastes great!
