I'm not a huge syrup fan, so I pour this sauce over my pancakes instead. It goes great with all kinds of cake, too. —Stella Kalynchuk, Whitehorse, Yukon

"We really liked the flavor of this cran-apple sauce, but I didn't even bother to puree it; just mashed it a bit with a potato masher. We found it to be delicious served warm with roast pork for Christmas dinner, although it is also good cold. A definite keeper recipe!"
