This recipe has been used for generations. It was my childhood favorite that my Grandmother made. I had an awesome teacher and make this often for family functions, I can almost see her smiling when we eat this.

This is similar to what I remember eating growing up served on a piece of lettuce. I made this last year and forgot to review. It was way too sweet for our tastes. I decided to make it again this year but reduced the sugar by 1/2cup. Also I used a 12oz. bag of cranberries (could not find 1 lb.) so that probably made a difference. It is good, but my family barely touches it- just too sweet I guess. That sounds funny when you have 5 kids eating it, though! I give it 4 stars because it was what I was looking for, but my family was not thrilled with it.
