"Good recipe. I love cranberries. Had some applesauce that needed to be used, so I added a tablespoon to the cranberry sauce. It added another taste dimension."

"This is quite tasty! A nice alternative if you prefer more sweet rather than tart cranberry sauce.

"This can get pretty 'sweet' so you may want to increase the cranberries to 3 cups."

"This was extremely quick and easy. It is good, but my family prefers another one on here that is similar, but has no honey or orange peel in it."
