Simple and Satisfying!

Maureen from San Diego, California

I make this every year on Thanksgiving. It's very simple - the cranberry is the star and it tastes simply delicious! I'm in love with this recipe. Very fast, easy cleanup!

Why buy canned?

Vivian from New York, New York

I grew up on the canned stuff and kind of miss the noise it makes coming out: shhh-THWOP! My sister made this recipe one year long ago and we were shocked how good it was - even more so when she explained the simple 2-step process. Amazing!

Fresh Cranberry Sauce

Diane from Ocala, Florida

No reason to buy it canned. This is so easy. I have changed it by using orange juice in place of the water and have cut down on the sugar since I like it a little more tart. I have also used fresh grated orange peel.

SO EASY!!

Catherine from Millbrook, AL

This recipe is so ridiculously easy I don't know why anyone would buy canned cranberry sauce. My kids went crazy over it; they said it was awesome.

sooooooo easy

Rodney from Mount Holly, NC

I started making my own cranberry sauce about 20 years ago and I can't go back...this is the easiest and BEST recipe around. In fact, I'm making it right now for tomorrow's festivities.
