    Altered ingredient amounts. I've never eaten cranberry sauce, it just seemed yucky to me, but it was requested for christmas and this recipe seemed interesting. I loved it! I think it was the combination of fresh cranberries and apples with all the lovely spices! I couldn't wait to eat the leftover turkey with this and the house smelled wonderful. I only changed a couple of things...only 4tbsp of cider vinegar, added 2 tbsp of dark brown sugar and left out the sultanas. This was YUMMY!  -  21 Jul 2008


    Something else. I have made this for 4 years now, with excellent results every time. I use the recipe as written. The only thing different is that I simmer for much longer than 10 minutes. It's more like 20 minutes, and then I turn the heat off and mash it all together with a potato masher. It is heavenly! Tomorrow it will be served at room temperature for all to enjoy. ~ Cheers  -  21 Jul 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. Everyone absolutely RAVED about this! It was so flavourful and the vinegar gave it a nice twist (but I only used 5 TBSP). I loved that it wasn't just cranberries, the other fruits gave nice textures and the apples balanced out the tartness of the cranberries. Will definately be making this for future Christmas lunches!  -  21 Jul 2008
