MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 12, 2013

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.

This came out excellent! I did substitute 2 medium pears for the dried plums and added 1/4 cup of honey when cooking. To mash or not to mash? I mashed 1/2 and mixed together. Everyone loved it at Thanksgiving!

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.
