Simple but very tasty. I use it as an ingredient for several other recipes instead of using a canned sauce.

I like this w/o the lemon juice. Made it the regular recipe and then using this recipe. Lemon juice makes it too tart for me. I really like cranberries and like using the cranberry-raspberry juice.

This is a great basic recipe. I've followed it exactly with excellent and reliable results, and I've used it a starting point for my own versions (using different juices).

So easy and so good, why would anyone eat cranberry sauce out of a can?

I never really liked cranberry sauce until I tried this recipe from scratch... It has the perfect amount of sweetness.

I have always hated cranberry sauce from a can. It tastes good but bad texture and looks rather unappealing. This recipe was so fast, easy, and inexpensive I can't imagine why anyone would ever buy canned cranberry sauce again. My entire family loved this, it was so good! It had a great texture with some cranberries still slightly intact, overall delicious!

So simple to make and very tasty. There is a hint of raspberry and it's not too sweet like so many store bought varieties.

Added a touch of cinnamon and used orange juice instead of cranberry juice (we ran out)--delicious and easy!

I made this recipe and took it to our family Thanksgiving celebration. Everyone liked it but my 92 year old grandma thought it was too sweet. Maybe she likes the cranberries a little more tart. I thought they were a perfect blend. It did not coagulate like I thought it would, but here is what I did with the leftovers. 1. We had breakfast for supper tonight. I made waffles and placed the cranberry sauce on the waffles with some home made cinnamon whipped cream. 2. I made kolache's (my other grandmother's no fail recipe!) I used the cranberry sauce for the filling. YUMMO! I was able to place one berry and some of the sauce in each kolache. I can't wait for my dad to try them tomorrow. Maybe not the same as Grandmas, but the dough definately brings her back to me! I will make this recipe many times now that I have found my favorite.
