Surprisingly good. The onions made me skeptical, but I was pleasantly surprised. If I made it again, I'd leave out the onion and substitute apples and raisins instead. I'd also double the spices. I threw in some sunflower seeds for variety.

This was amazing! Everyone loved it at Thanksgiving tonight :) The cranberries were wonderful. I thought the onions would be overpowering but they were perfect with the slight sweetness of the sauce (these are not too sweet, not like candied yams at all). I will definitely be making these again. I have the other half frozen for another time and will update the review once I cook them from frozen!

This was very good and I thought the amount of onion was perfect. I would not substitute the onion with apples and raisins as some others have suggested because I think that would make the dish sickeningly sweet and much more caloric. It is sweet enough as is as far as we're concerned. We really liked it.
