Making cranberry sauce is soooooo easy and the flavor is nothing like canned, thank God! Made half a batch to test for next weeks feast. It is wonderful. Will make full batch as this will not be enough for two of us and there are 13 next week. For half batch added 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon ginger, 1/16 nutmeg. Will double for a full batch. I like it a bit more chunky so will reserve 1/2 cup cranberries and add in for last 5 or 10 minutes.

Use 2 or 3 organic oranges for the zest and juice. We love it

This is very similar to my recipe, but I add rum and orange bitters. Check out the recipe at cutieandthefeast.com

This was a really good base for a homemade but quick and delicious cranberry sauce. I followed the directions and merged it with another MS recipe, adding 2 tablespoons freshly grated ginger while it cooked and 4 tablespoons sherry vinegar with the orange juice at the end. The only change next time would be to cut the recipe in half. Two 12oz bags made waaay too much-even for leftovers, and I had 16 people for a potluck.

I was looking for an easy, fragrant and flavorful cranberry sauce recipe for Thanksgiving...this one was perfect! I added a little cinnamon and ginger as mentioned in another post. Crossing my figures that the family loves it as much as I do!

This is exactly the recipe that I love to make every year and but I add cinnamon and ginger to taste. I make a head and put it in the frig in canning jars to give as a gift or take to a unexpected holiday dinner. Wonderful!

Yummy! Of course, I never leave a recipe along. I made a half recipe which included 1 bag cranberries, 1 pear (pealed and diced), peel of 1 whole orange-diced, juice of the orange, 1/2 cup water, dash of cinnamon, 1/8 tsp ground ginger, 1/2 cup Splenda, 1/4 cup sugar, pinch of salt, and dash of ground Cayenne pepper. Threw it all in a small saucepan. Follow cooking directions. Great for relish or on top of oatmeal or drizzled on cheesecake.

This was so simple, but amazing. So fragrant. I didn't have oranges, but fresh Clementines on hand and for the zest and juice it was exquisite. A new favorite for the future.
