This is really good! I made it with a few changes. I used a bag of frozen cranberries, 1 small diced apple, and 1/2 brown 1/2 white sugar and used only 1/4 t nutmeg. Otherwise followed the recipe. I was afraid it was going to be too sweet, but once the cranberries popped, the tartness required the amount of sugar. I can't imagine this with 1/4 C craisins as I would think it would be way sweet. I love nutmeg, but 1/4 t seemed to be enough spice for the whole bag of cranberries. Might want to start with 1/4 and taste before adding the rest.
