"I have made this recipe over and over. My family can never get enough. What makes it even better is if you buy the fresh cranberries and cook them as the bag says then use those for the rest of the recipe. I do not baste the roast anymore and I do not reduce it as long as it says. I prefer to have a lot of liquid to use as a gravy. Left overs are way better as well cooked in all the liquid and the meat cut up. What I would love to know is if anyone has tried this on a turkey breast. I am considering trying it today."
