Reviews for Vanilla Cranberry Sauce
"This sauce is definitely worth trying! SO easy (only four ingredients--REJOICE!!!!) and fast. My husband was my taste-tester and said he thought it was really good!I think next time I make this (probably around Christmas) I will replace half the OJ with half a cup of apple juice just to give it a little more sweetness and balance the tartness of the cranberries. Or I may keep the OJ as-is and add another 1/4 cup of sugar to the mix. This is just to my family's preference. I may also add a second vanilla bean just because I love that flavor so much!"
