While this cranberry sauce is simmering, the wonderful fragrance of the spices brings back happy memories of when my mother made it for the holidays. My husband and three sons are glad I’m carrying on her tradition! —Allison Thompson, Lansing Michigan

"Besides the quickness of assembling this dish, the blend of flavors was spot on. Stirring occasionally and tasting along the way made me even more appreciative of this simple yet elegant side dish. This will also travel in the car well!"

"I made this for friends on Thanksgiving, and had such great comments about it that I made it again for my family for Christmas dinner. I make it the night before I need it, since then it is well set and the flavor of the spices really comes out."

"I made this last Thanksgiving, and just made it again for this one. I tastes as good as it smells. It is great on a left over turkey sandwich also."

"I combined 2 of your recipes--this one and added 1 tsp. vanilla, chopped almonds, and probably another cup of sugar. My husband prefers sweet rather than tangy cranberries.

Both of us thought the results was delicious. I'm sure I'll keep making this way rather than the old family way."
