    I have made this for the past couple of years for either Thanksgiving or Christmas! It was very good and presents well. Sure beats cranberry sauce out of a can!!

    I prefer plain cranberry sauce to this apple variety. Perfect if you need to stretch your cranberries for cranberry sauce OR if you need to strectch you apples for applesauce!

    My family seems to be a canned cranberry sauce family. I tried making this recipe to entice them to fresh cranberry sauce this year, but it didn't go very well. This recipe makes a large portion. I thought it was fine, but there weren't a lot of second-helpings by other people.

    Brilliant recipe! The zest of lemon, texture added with dried cranberries and lovely apples makes this sauce a favorite. Have found even those who don't care for cranberries reaching for seconds.

    I usually make a homemade cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving that most people pass up for the canned variety, so I decided to try this recipe this year. I did not have a lemon, so I subbed 1/2 cup or orange juice for the lemon and water. The flavor came out great, but I wasn't happy with the texture of the apples. If I make again, I might try blending it.

    This has become the dish I'm expected to bring for Thanksgiving. In addition to tasting good, it has a beautiful color & smells wonderful while it's cooking.
