Amazing Cranberry Sauce

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Brenda G

This is a really nice change from the basic fresh cranberry sauce and I would never buy canned sauce again! Very simple to make, and the leftovers added to a package of raspberry jello makes an awesome fruity jello dessert.

The name could NOT be more correct! I had to make it twice in three days! Had to share the recipe a few times, too! It was tough to not eat too much at one time! Also worked beautifully in cranberry sauce muffins and chewy cranberry bars (shortbread base) - I combined the leftover sauce with orange marmalade for the bars! JUST AWESOME!
