While this cranberry sauce is simmering, the wonderful fragrance of the spices brings back happy memories of when my mother made it for the holidays. My husband and three sons are glad I’m carrying on her tradition! —Allison Thompson, Lansing Michigan

"I've made this twice, once as written and once tweaked a little. The second time I made it, I used half white sugar and half brown sugar and instead of water, I used apple cider. It's great both ways, but we loved the changes!"

"This is the only cranberry sauce I have ever tasted so I have nothing to compare it to, but I've made it 3 times now and think it's pretty amazing! I do find it a bit heavy on the spice but it doesn't bother me enough to make any changes."

"Besides the quickness of assembling this dish, the blend of flavors was spot on. Stirring occasionally and tasting along the way made me even more appreciative of this simple yet elegant side dish. This will also travel in the car well!"

"I made this for friends on Thanksgiving, and had such great comments about it that I made it again for my family for Christmas dinner. I make it the night before I need it, since then it is well set and the flavor of the spices really comes out."

"I made this last Thanksgiving, and just made it again for this one. I tastes as good as it smells. It is great on a left over turkey sandwich also."
