This was soooo good...I've never used fresh cranberries for anything before, never knew what to do with them! This is a perfect recipe, YUMMY! I did pour it into a really large casserole dish (coated with nonstick spray) I cut it into squares and served it on small plates, used baby spinach leaves under it for color. Friends that don't normally eat cranberry sauce loved it. PS...I had a larger can of crushed pineapple, so I used the leftover pineapple in my sweet potato casserole, and added a little dark rum to them, everyone raved!
