This is a phenomenal recipe. I grew up with "the can shaped stuff" and was actually kind of grossed out the first time I had "real" cranberry sauce. This recipe leans toward the real stuff, but stayed sweet enough and had the best texture. I loved it. I've been doing all sorts of things with the leftovers! THanks!

I had mixed reactions to this recipe, some loved it, some hated it and some sat somewhere in the middle. It was easy to make and I thought it was fine... but I am the biggest fruit lover of all who tried this and maybe that makes a difference? There was a slight after-taste of Splenda, which if you are used to sugar might have been the offputting part of this recipe. Please see my rating system: personal taste is everything, and for us, not enough of us in a group of 6 liked it well enough for me to give this more than 3 stars. Still, I am glad that I tried it and to have given it a chance. Thanks! (Recipe made for Pick A Chef Spring 2008)
