This recipe is a great change of pace from the more common orange-cranberry sauce combinations. We especially like it around the holidays served alongside a roast turkey. It's so much better than canned cranberry sauce. —Janet Briggs

"This is so simple, but very good, I doubled the recipe. I thought there was too much water so instead of 4 cups of water I used 2 1/2 cups water & 1 cup of cranberry juice for extra flavour, I also added 1/2 tes cherry extract.

I love this sauce."

"Loved the recipe. Received positive feedback on it. The only thing I changed was I cut back the sugar to 1 cup (never missed that 1/2 cup) and soaked the cherries in some Cran-Cherry juice that I had left from another recipe. I will definitely make this one again!"
