Top Review by KLHquilts

I tried this recipe for Thanksgiving 2007 -- can't believe I never reviewed it. I've made it a gazillion times since then; it's by far my favorite cranberry sauce recipe. I do vary it by chopping up the oranges and throwing them in, too; I also have changed the sugar to 1 cup (or a bit more) of brown sugar, and throwing in a teaspoon of cinnamon. But you still get the extra little kick of the crystallized ginger, and it's fabulous. Thanks for posting this!
