My mother-in-law makes this super-easy sauce every Thanksgiving. Cherries give tart cranberries a slightly sweet flavor. I serve it alongside turkey, pork and ham.

MY REVIEW

I tried this recipe for Thanksgiving dinner. It was a hit - I was told to make it again.

My Mom has been making this delish recipe for at least 10 years now. Both my sister and I make it for our family's Thanksgiving dinner. Mom cut the water down to 3/4 cup, and it thickens up quickly. Be sure to pop those cranberries with the back of a wooden spoon, while simmering. Just made up a recipe for this year's Turkey Day! YUM!

It came out great. I have never made cranberry sauce before since I'm not a big fan of cranberries. This recipe was simple enough and let me use up leftover cherries I had. I made an adult version of the recipe by adding alcohol infused sour cherries I lad left over from making a Cherry Liquor. While cooking I thought it was a little too sweet, but at the end it came out just right. I didn't have problems with it not getting thick. Since I made this recipe a day in advance I had to warm it up before serving it jellied so well. Adults in my family liked it a lot, and I think I will make it every year from now on.

I made this for Thanksgiving and was not real impressed with it.

I have made this recipe for the past few years during the holiday season and my friends and family love it. Its a great flavorful alternative to jellied cranberry sauce and is a lovely colorful addition to a holiday table. My family and friends ask if I will be making this recipe every year and I often find myself making extra to last through the leftovers!
