My husband does not eat sugar, so I used honey for the sweetener. This was a terrific addition to our Thanksgiving dinner. Even my spice intolerant friend enjoyed the tang of the horseradish!

Yes!! finally a cranberry sauce that isn't sickly sweet. Love it

I used two cups of sugar and a little less horseradish. But this is a great recipe if you want to try something different this year!!!

I was looking to match a Cranberry Horseradish Jam that was made by Stonewall Kitchens (it seems to have been discontinued). This comes pretty close but is more of a relish than a jam.

I was interested when I read this recipe, so I thought I would try it - WOW, am I glad I did! This cranberry sauce it really good - almost everyone liked it, and the guys all went back for more...

This didn't quite set up as much as I'd like and I really wanted more horseradish flavor. If I make it again I'll double or triple the horseradish.

This is a different and delicious sauce. I'm always looking for something with a twist of flavor. I too added a half cup more sugar to taste. Thanks for the recipe.

This sauce went great with my rib roast dinner on Christmas. But, next time I will have to add a tad more horseradish to have with my roast. Super easy to make, too. Thanks.

I've made this for 3 years now - best cranberry sauce out there!
