This is the only cranberry sauce you'll ever want to eat again. Amazing.

Its better when simply blended in the blender with orange zest.

We enjoyed this cranberry sauce very much, but I just realized that I used 12 oz. cranberries, instead of 8, and it came out about the same *wateriness* as other recipes. It's probably just the right amount of sweetness for most. For me, it was a little too sweet. I'll try cider next time, and if it's still too sweet I'll cut back on sugar. Doubles well!

I tried making this recipe exactly as directed. It turned out very watery and not anything like the picture. Most cranberry sauces call for 1 cup of liquid for 12 oz. of cranberries. I am sure that the instruction for 3 cups of apple juice for 8 oz. of cranberries is incorrect.

Oh wow, its fabulous made it for thanksgiving now again for Christmas. It a family favorite

So easy for the holidays

First time I have ever made cranberry sauce- I have been used to that canned, tasteless stuff for years. I tried this recipe at Christmas and it was a big hit. I added juice of 1/2 lime to give a little pep, but it was not needed. I have made it twice now: the second batch I'll let thicken more to use as a jam.

The recipe does not specify what size bag of cranberries to use. We had an 8 oz bag and used it to make this recipe for Christmas dinner with both turkey and tofurkey. The sauce is excellent. Even my grumpy father-in-law who doesn't like cranberries ate a bowl of it. Thank you for sharing it.
