Couldn't find my usual recipe so I tried this instead. It was good, but not the best I've ever made. Very soupy. Didn't thicken well. Needed to drain off extra liquid. Not sure why. Just seemed very ordinary to me. No better than the recipe on the back of the cranberry package. And I bought a bottle of port just to make this.
