Recipe by Lisa Clarice

This is the best cranberry sauce! I make this recipe for Thanksgiving and Christmas every year and everyone just loves it. I have given this recipe to lots of friends and family over the years, and they are all still making it. It's easy to make and I know it will be a favorite at your dinner table! Give it a try and let me know what you think.

I made this sauce for Thanksgiving and should have tripled the recipe. It's awesome and was gone in a flash. Even the kids loved it.
