This is an excellent recipe. So simple to make and the raves are overwhelming

I accidentally made a cranberry sauce very similar to yours, only the base recipe I had (and changed) used pineapple juice. I think mine didn't have enough sugar either. Anyways, I'm going to save this for the future.

Very nice and easy to make. Liked the addition of cinnamon. It smells so good while cooking. Made half the recipe but used the full teaspoon cinnamon. Thanks for posting
