Reviews for Cherry Cranberry Sauce
"I've been making this for several years now. Its a huge hit. I do add a bit of almond extract to the finished product to "kick it up a notch". The first time I made this my son got a hold of it and ate half of it before I could stop him and I had to make another batch.Also great on vanilla ice cream."
"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."
