MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 12, 2010

"Last holiday season I froze bags of fresh cranberries, but I never got around to using them. Knowing that they would go to waste if I didn't find a way to use them, I looked for a recipe. I decided on this one, and boy! was it a hit. My family exclaimed that it was Christmas in July! It is especially refreshing in hot weather so it doesn't have to be saved for cold weather holidays. I served it with barbecue!"
