I have never liked cranberry sauce before. This year though, I have discovered that I like dried cranberries. So I decided to come up with a cranberry sauce that I can like. You can put in the raisins and the cranberries or one or none. It is up to your taste buds! For my tastes, I put in both. :) **Update Mar 30/08 - After the last time I made this, I threw the leftovers into a jar and popped it into the freezer. Then the next holiday, I just set it on the counter for the afternoon. Dumped some out for dinner and threw it back into the freezer. It was just as good the second time around as it was when it was made fresh.
