I used 1/4 C water with 2 bags and 1 3/4 C sugar to be more solid like the canned without the seeds. You might want more sugar because it is a bit tart. You have to use a heavy spoon and push through a wire strainer. It takes more time but is worth the effort!

I usually buy my Cranberry Sauce, but this time I wanted to make homemade instead. We usually go to the Cape in early November, but I wanted to buy some fresh cranberries and do this the old fashion way.( Well to me it is)~Instructions were very easy to follow. I did have one slight problem though, the sieving was a bit much. especially when you make enough for the entire large family. I chose to use my ninja, same great taste more bodied. No offense, but mine is much Thank you, From One Happy Nannie
