Reviews for Spiced Cranberry Sauce
"This is deliciously fresh, and so easy. I added zest of lemon --- perfect, yummy!"
"I prefer to serve homemade cranberry sauce instead of canned for my New Year's Day dinner. This is my favorite recipe thus far."
"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!"
"Made this for Thanksgiving and everyone raved and wanted the recipe. It was delicious."
"I found this recipe in 2009 and my family wants it each year since then. Spicy, sweet, tart and just great."
"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."
"will be making it for the third year in a row. just added 1 can of manderine oranges."
"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."
"I've made this the past two years. This year for Turkey Day and Christmas. Family loves the spicy kick."
"This is one of the very best things I have EVER made! Love the spice.~ Theresa"
"I am making this for our family thanksgiving dinner. It is SOOO GOOD!! The spices make it different from other cranberry sauces, but it is a welcome change! My family and friends really enjoy it!"
"I love this sauce. Everyone who tried it did also. It goes well with chicken as well as turkey."
"This had way too much clove for my liking. However, some of the relatives really liked it. If I make again I would eliminate the cloves all together and the all spice."
