Comments on this Recipe

I made this on the fly one night as a side dish. I had all of the ingredients in the house except sherry. But I had apple juice! Very sweet and very tasty! I saved the leftover liquid to put on ice cream later!

I love this recipe! I love cranberries and this recipe is so wonderful!

This is the recipe that turned my family into cranberry sauce lovers! We make it every Thanksgiving and Christmas now. Thank you!

Looks delicious but I wonder if you can substitute dried cranberries as fresh cranberries are pretty hard to come buy here in Australia.

Wow. So good! So simple. This is a new fave.
