    Could this be any easier? It was delicious for my Thanksgiving meal. I did cut the sugar by a quarter plus because I like my cranberries tart, but next time I iwll cute more because I think it was still plenty sweet.

    Good, but I like the one from November 2007 better. I definitely used it all up, but probably will not make again.

    This is the BEST cranberry sauce I've ever had. I had never made my own until I made this and it was so easy. I love the hint of clove in the recipe. The next time, I'm going to try to cut the sugar a little.

    I made this last year for Thanksgiving and I am making it again this year. It is really good and easy. I add toasted pecans. Much better than that store bought stuff!

    I never knew it was so EASY to make cranberry sauce. This recipe has now become a family favorite in our house. I make it throughout the year. We use it as cranberry jam on our biscuits. We mix it into our hot oatmeal, We pour it on top of our pancakes and french toast. It's wonderful!

    I've tried many cranberry sauce recipes, a lot from Cooking Light, and this is by far the best.

    This was a big hit for the holidays! It was easy, easy, easy, and yummy, yummy yummy. Definately a "keeper". All who tasted it wanted the recipe.

    EASY! Way better than the canned stuff! Cut the sugar to just 1C and it probably could've been cut even more--it's pretty sweet.

    Delicious! Very flavorful and easy to make. This will be my go to recipe each year for Thanksgiving.

    I made this last year and my family loved it, especially the hint of ginger and cloves. Unique flavors and so much better than store bought. I also cut the sugar as it does not need to be that sweet. Great as a condiment on sandwiches, added to yogurt or as a topper on a hot cereal. Cranberries are so good for you, so think outside the box and experiment with this great sauce.

    I love this cranberry sauce! The only change I make is to add a handful of dried cranberries into the mix half way thru cooking. I'm making early this year to jar and put in the fridge for breakfast breads.

    I make something similar, I add a whole diced orange at the end when I take it off the heat, it adds a freshness that is wonderful. I peel the orange part and cut up for zest and then peel the white part and trow it away, it is bitter.

    Very easy to make and my family--who never eats the canned cranberry sauce--loved it! will definitely make a again. Delicious on the turkey sandwiches too!

    Is there reason that I couldn't use splenda instead of sugar for this sauce? thanks,

    I made this last Thanksgiving and plan to make it again. I cut the sugar to less than 1 cup and used a mixture of light brown and white sugar. It was delicious.

    My go to cranberry sauce for the holidays

    This is the best cranberry sauce... We make a few batches and freeze it until next season of fresh cranberries. Its like having fresh all the time.

    I love this sauce! It's good by itself and on other food and it makes the house smell so good when it's cooking. I can't believe I ever ate canned cranberry!

    This is my go-to cranberry sauce recipe every holiday season. Leftover sauce is great spread on toast, over Brie, or served with homemade pumpkin bread.

  • AlisonR12 Posted: 11/27/13

    Delicious! I made this sauce last year, and we ended up eating most of it before it was time for dinner. I'm making this sauce again this year, and after trying this, I just can't go back to the canned version. This recipe is fast, easy and definitely worth it. This will be the cranberry sauce I make every year from now on.
