Looking for a delicious way to get extra vitamin C and fiber in your diet? Give this versatile sauce a try. It's great as a condiment or side dish to turkey, pork, fish or chicken. It also makes a terrific dessert or snack mixed with a serving of vanilla ice cream, yogurt or as a topping on your favorite cheesecake. —Kye Feasel, Canal Winchester, Ohio

"Made for Thanksgiving last year, used the leftovers on turkey sandwiches and reheated and put over a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Have already been asked to make again for this upcoming Thanksgiving and I'm excited about having leftovers! I really enjoy the extra flavor and spice this sauce has."

"excellent recipe. My family says to please always use this recipe for cranberry sauce in future. I did not have a can of pineapple so I substituted fresh peeled and chopped clementines and some water to make up for the pineapple juice. The spices were just right. I put some in a pretty glass jar for a hostess gift as we were going out to a family dinner the day I made it. It was great with our chicken dinner. I added some to my greek yogurt for breakfast. It goes with lots of things."
