Meet the Cook: I don't like my pancakes with syrup, so I pour this sauce over them instead. It goes great with chocolate cake, carrot cake or any other type of cake also. Both my husband and I love cranberries. We use them with chicken, turkey and pork...on ice cream or on pudding...or, when it's hot, just eat them plain or with some whipping cream. I've always enjoyed cooking - and it makes me feel good inside when I know other people enjoy my cooking, 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!"
