Total Time

Prep: 10 min. Cook: 45 min. + chilling


7 cups

"My grandmother gave me the recipe for this tangy cranberry dish more than 30 years ago," says Jill Alpert of Kansas, Missouri. "It's a nice accompaniment to a traditional turkey dinner, but it also goes well with pork. I save a portion to make the cranberry gelatin salad for the next day."


  • 3 packages (12 ounces each) fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 3-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground allspice or cloves


  1. In a Dutch oven, combine all of the ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 35-40 minutes or until the cranberries pop and mixture is thickened. Cover and refrigerate until chilled.
