Very easy to make and yummy! I did add 1 1/2 tsp of orange peel to the water and sugar mixture. The citrus blended very well with the tartness of the cranberries. You will need to skim the "foam" off the top of the sauce before canning. Next time I may add a pat of butter. This helps with the foam in jams. It may help with this as well. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
