Made some changes to the recipe, used fresh cranberries, gingerbeer ( non-alcohol), and 2 cups of light Brown sugar (could not read my handwriting). Sometimes mistakes work wonderful, especially for those who has a sweet tooth. Next year will boil fresh ginger to give some depth.

We really enjoyed this sauce; we love strong ginger flavor so added a small pinch of powdered ginger and decided not to blend. The sauce provided a wonderful, full flavor that complimented our turkey quite nicely, and would accompany ham beautifully as well. It has strong orange and ginger flavor (especially with the extra pinch), but also reminds of a traditional orange-cranberry-sugar relish. Very nice.

Made this for Thanksgiving and it was the only thing people did not touch. I like cranberry sauce, but this was a little much. You really need to love cranberries to love this. However, I did have to use fresh cranberries since my grocery store did not have frozen.

Even my cranberry-hating relatives enjoy this and the kids in the family LOVE it! It's easy to make - I've even used diet ginger ale and sugar-free maple-flavored syrup and it was still good. Oh, and preparing it makes the house smell wonderful for hours!

Everything Alton makes is great, including this cranberry sauce! It took a little while (closer to 45-50 minutes) to reduce the sauce down, but it was worth it. Definitely not too sweet - which was perfect! Went great with our thanksgiving ham (Honey Baked Ham (Copycat)).

Thank you for sharing this lovely recipe. It was quick and easy to make, with excellent results. I made this cranberry dipping sauce for Thanksgiving. It was awesome, loved the orange and ginger additions. This sauce was wonderful in Vickie's Turkey, Cranberry Sandwiches. Made for Think Pink 2015.

Wish I could give this more, but it just seemed to be missing something. A lot of something. Sorry, Alton, this was a miss for me.

Thanks! He changed all of his recipes around on Food Network's website and I couldn't find this one. It's sooooo good, was about to cry at the thought of not having it this year!

We made smoked turkey wraps with the sauce on the side for dipping, for a meeting. This was the first thing to run out. I later made this for Thanksgiving Reunion, again one of the first to dissapear. One uncle used a dinner roll to swab the remaining sauce from the sides of the serving container. Folks, anything AB makes is good! Thanks for sharing with us!!!

Loved this except I used a blender like Alton Brown did and it left tiny little skins that get caught in the back of your mouth-next time I'll leave it with whole cranberries. I squeezed a fresh orange at the end to give added oj flavor. I love oj and cranberries together:) This will be on the Thanksgiving table for years to come.
