I started out making it as written but one cup of cranberries is not enough, it was more of a cranberry soup then a sauce. I added the rest of a twelve ounce bag and another three quarters cup sugar.
Other than the ratio of cranberries to liquid needing an adjustment this is a good recipe and flavor of the wine really comes through.
