I'm a cranberry nut, and this is really good. Be sure not to overprocess the cranberries and to chill before serving. WONDERFUL!

This is probably the best cranberry sauce recipe I have made. Very good and easy to make.

Huge hit & very easy. I used frozen cranberries. Didn't even thaw before making...

This cranberry sauce is outstanding! I made four batches this Thanksgiving and placed the sauce in jelly jars and gave them away. Many many compliments and many of my friends used theirs over warm Brie. Definitely do not over process the cranberries. This one is a keeper!

Just made this recipe this evening. I cannot wait to serve it on Thanksgiving. It smells and tastes wonderful! I can just taste the leftover turkey sandwich with this cranberry sauce! I will definitely make this again.

Oh my. This is good stuff! And none of the chopping nuts and peeling oranges, etc. that I have done in the past with more complicated cranberry sauces and conserves. This is super easy but tastes more "fancy" than it is. Yes, all of the other posters were right, don't overprocess this. Three pulses of my food processor was too much. I should have stopped at two.

Oh my goodness! This is a great cranberry sauce. Made it for Christmas and it was delicious - and so easy to make. Also, the color was beautiful on our Christmas table. If you have minors for dinner, you may want to provide additional cranberry sauce, since this one is pretty potent. This will be a permanent addition on my holiday table.

This is absolutely amazing!!! I used chambourd instead of port and blended it in my blender. It was increadible spooned over ice cream!

I've made this the past two holiday seasons. It's a favorite. There is nothing mundane about this recipe. It takes the cranberry sauce to a whole new dimension! I haven't tried it but one reviewer recommended it on warm brie. It sounds heavenly! I'm going to serve it that way at least once this season.

Super easy and tastes amazing! Made this for Thanksgiving dinner and it was a big hit. Also very beautiful looking; served it in a large, cut-glass bowl and it was the highlight of the table. Highly recommend!!
