I had an extra bag of cranberries in the freezer leftover from the holidays and decided to try this unusual but fabulous sauce/gravy. Following the recipe was very easy, as was the actual preparation...it just does it's thing on the stove simmering away without much attention. After pureeing the sauce with my stick blender, it turned into a perfect texture to nap a nice slab of roast lamb. This sauce was a perfect sweet-savory foil for the rich meat. From now on I'll be loading my freezer with holiday berries so that I can make this delicious sauce all year long. Great recipe, Barb!
