    Something else. My family never touches the cranberry sauce at Christmas (we usually use the jar) but I'm a fan of it and decided to make some home-made and used this recipe. It was a hit~we didn't have a single bit left over!!! I did make a few modifications: I used 4 tablespoons more sugar. I also put all ingredients into a pot and cooked it on the hob until the berries popped. Then, I placed it all into a blender to make it smooth. I then added some orange zest. After letting it cool in the fridge, it was the perfect "jelly" consistency.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Something else. This recipe was so delicious! It definitely beats the shop-bought cranberry sauce I usually buy at the store. I'm really not a big fan of cranberry sauce (but my husband is) so I mainly made it for him. Needless to say, even I ended up eating some sauce with my turkey! The best part is that it's so easy and fast to make. The only thing I did different was put the mixture in the blender after the berries "popped" to make it a bit smoother.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Something else. This is your classic and easy cranberry sauce recipe! I made this last night on the cooker. Combined the sugar and water to boil for 5 minutes. Then added the cranberries and let boil for another 5 minutes, until the cranberries begin to burst. I also added some orange zest and orange juice for a little special flavour. My husband loved this! Will definitely be making this again.  -  29 Sep 2008
