This recipe is a hybrid of two different recipes. I've always liked canned cranberries, but wasn't sure how to imitate them. So naturally when I found a jellied cranberry sauce recipe, I was thrilled! The only trouble with it was that it lacked pizazz. So I found a recipe with spunk, and morphed the two into one-- this one. Feel free to play around with this recipe; just be fore-warned that if you add any more gelatin, you may end up with something that more closely resembles an alien lifeform whipped up in a Lab than yummy cranberry sauce. Also, an important note about yield: chances are that you'll end up throwing out more of the cranberry (skins, stems, etc) than ends up in the final dish; unfortunately this is just the nature of the beast. Hope you enjoy!
