The colorful cranberry sauce in this recipe has a sweet tart flavor that makes it a wonderful accompaniment to juicy pork. There is plenty of sauce for each serving of pork.—Jessica Philleo, Carmel, Indiana
- 1 package (12 ounces) fresh or frozen cranberries, thawed
- 1 package (12 ounces) frozen pitted dark sweet cherries, thawed
