This is the ultimate best and liked by almost everyone since it is such a basic recipe! I have been making this for the past 4 years, and have used both cider and juice and both have come out great. I agree with the other reader who likes it straight from the pot with a spoon! But, it's also great on a peanut butter sandwich instead of jelly! Have used it in the Jack Quesadillas with Cranberry Salsa ecipe (CL Nov. 2004) which is also awesome and has become my favorite after-Thanksgiving recipe!
This is my go to recipe for cranberry sauce. Every year, I make this almost once every two weeks or so from November through December. I just bought some fresh cranberries and may make this now... and it's not quite October. I like to play around by adding various warm spices, like cinnamon, allspice, cloves, and nutmeg. I've had it without the spices and it's still wonderful. Super easy and delicious!
