Recipe by William Uncle Bill

I have been experimenting with cranberries to try and come up with a sauce that has some delightful flavors. I used various combinations of ingredients and woweee, this one so far is the best.

Uncle Bill--you rock. I tried this because I LOVE LOVE LOVE cranberries and I will shamelessly admit I ate it all myself. I didn't find pineapple orange marmalade, so I used orange and threw in a can of crushed pineapple. Normally when trying something new, I follow the recipe to the letter, or I don't rate it, but in this case it was so good, I will always make it this way. Thank you again for another good recipe, and keep em comin!!
