    Jeanette G's Note:

    I was watching a cooking show one day and this recipe caught my eye because it was just too simple. I love having cranberry sauce with my dressing during Thanksgiving and thought it would be a nice change of pace from the old can version.

      I made this for Thanksgiving and it was so easy and good. I definitely had to add more sugar though because it was quite tart at first.

      I have made this as written and with changes. My favorite change is to use apple juice instead of water, add a dash of cinnamon and 1 cup of cool whip (just before putting in a bowl to cool.) Either way this is a great recipe thanks for sharing!

      This is the only way I have made my sauce for years.....with the exception of the salt...but in the last couple of years I have thrown in 1/2 an orange to jazz up the flavour a bit. But you can't go wrong with the basics !
