This is a holiday family favorite that is delicious. I have had this recipe for a long time and have adapted it so it is almost fool-proof. I usually double the recipe because it goes so fast at the table. It is also versitile: omit the rasins and nuts for a great cranberry sauce. Cook it a bit more for a thicker, traditional jelly for the holiday table. It is easy to make and keeps in the refrigerator in sealed containers. It's a great side for fowl and pork dishes.
