Cranberry Sweet and Sour Sauce

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 10 mins

I made this sauce over meatballs at my daughter's wedding reception. It was a hit. Nice change from your regular sweet and sour. The cranberries give it just enough tartness. This recipe makes a lot so you may want to cut it down for smaller portions. It was enough for 280 1" meatballs.

LOVE THIS SAUCE! I made only half a batch, but another time will definitely make the whole thing! Followed your recipe exactly & was not disappointed, with flavor, prep or anything! This recipe goes into my 'gift ideas' for holidays cookbook! OUTSTANDING ~ Thanks so much for sharing! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this Spring's Pick-A-Chef]
