Wonderful! This made 2 pints for me and the first pint was gone with dinner. I served chicken and everyone raved about this sauce. Thanks for sharing. Made for Photo Tag.

It was a distinct pleasure both to make & to enjoy this sauce! I'm a cranberry lover, anyway, & always enjoy finding new ways to have them ~ A great delight having this over frozen vanilla yogurt & a piece of simple pound cake! Would like to make this for some end-of-the-year holiday gift giving! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Everyday's a Holiday tag]
