First Cranberry sauce!
Well it is Christmas Eve and I looked and looked and looked for Cranberry Jelly, none to be found nor even Cranberry sauce which I don't like as much. Lo and behold, here in Jamaica, there were bags of fresh cranberries. So found this recipe and it is the easiest thing one could imagine making....it is already setting and tastes YUM! You made my Christmas!
We forgot to get Cranberry Sauce to go with dinner, and they were out at the store, so I decided to give this a try. It's quick, easy, and tastes amazing. I will probably make my own cranberry sauce from now on!
Great flavor, but...
Since I make jams and jellies, it kills me to buy cranberry jelly at the store every year, just because some family insist on having jelly, not whole berry sauce. Tried this recipe this year and it turned out well. The flavor was fantastic and got huge raves. The problem was that the sauce didn't firm up and set AT ALL. I'm going to try adding half a packet of no-sugar pectin next time to see if that helps. Testing it this weekend so we can have it again at Christmas :)
If you want it even better and want to make it in a mold, you need to cook it until it reaches 217 degrees which takes quite a while, but it is festive and fun!!!
I made this last night and the cranberry jellied sauce has not solidified. What did I do wrong?
