    Way too bitter for my taste. If I make this again I will add a 1/2 cup of sugar and maybe an orange to sweeten it up a little more. I made a batch of this with raspberry preserves too which made a more sticky sauce but not any sweeter than the red currant sauce.

    **Grin** Oops! I cook it in the MICROWAVE for 10-12 minutes. Not as fussy, and I don't need to be constantly stirring things up.

    I love this simple sauce! Instead of cooking it on the stovetop, I place the cranberries and jelly in a glass measuring cup (8-cup) and cook for 10-12 minutes, stirring now and again. The sauce is not-too-sweet and the currants are an excellent match for the cranberries.

    Tried it with grape jelly when I couldn't find currant jelly, and liked it better (not quite so tart).
