Good news: Despite popular opinion that spicy food causes headaches, there's no evidence it does, Buchholz says. So eat spices and herbs with abandon.

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 want to top some vanilla ice cream with it. It smelled fantastic but it just didn't taste very good.

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.
