This is my go-to cranberry sauce recipe, and it has been since it was first published. I have tried other recipes but keep coming back to this one, as it is flavorful, somewhat different, and delicious.

This is a great recipe for Thanksgiving as well as any other time of the year. I've been making it for 9 years! I first made it with pears that I peeled, seeded and chopped but soon realized that after they cook down you can substitute canned pears and save yourself the extra work with no difference in the outcome. I've also added a teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice for a little extra flavor.

I make this recipe for Thanksgiving and Christmas substituting dried blueberries for raisins or currants, it is wonderful!

I guess I am too much of a purist, I really love my simple homemade cranberry sauce. I know ... boring! This recipe was good and I'm sure some would love it, but I don't think I will make it again.
