Good Morning, I am going grocery shopping and one of the things on my list is fresh cranberries. Can anyone give me an easy recipe for cranberry sauce? I've never made it and would like to try. Any hints or tips are welcome too. I am making and sending a Thanksgiving dinner with a friend to a remote work site up north for a bunch of guys who otherwise won't be getting a dinner and want it to be a special one. Thanks folks. This is much appreciated.

We liked this one. I've only made it once, I had no problems with it, even as a first timer....

Oh yea! So good when made with orange juice instead of water. It just 'pops' with flavor.

This is our favorite. We make two batches and add walnuts to one. YUM!

I make a smooth sauce, not fully jellied like the can.

Wow! Sounds so good. I will definitely use orange juice and in another the walnuts sound like a great addition. I also like the idea of brown sugar and rum in this. You guys are great. Thank you so much for the help. I know they will love this.

this is a good one if you don't like the tart cranberry sauces. which I don't. if you are using fresh cranberries I would cut back the juice a bit, and just keep some handy until you get it thickened and see if you need to thin it a bit.

I guess it helps if I give you the recipe right? LOL 888 2 cups cranberry Juice 1 (6 oz.) bag dried cranberries 2 dashes ground cinnamon 1 cup sugar 2 gala apples, peeled, cored and sliced 2 teaspoons corn starch Directions: 1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add the cranberry juice, cranberries, apples, cinnamon and sugar. Bring to a boil and let cook for 5 minutes. Add the apples and cook, stirring occasionally, until the cranberries have softened and apples are tender, about 5 minutes. 2. Remove 8 ounces of the liquid to a small bowl and whisk in the cornstarch. Slowly add the cornstarch-juice mixture (slurry) to the cranberry mixture, stirring constantly. Cook for an additional 5 minutes.

Thank you semi, this looks good. I love cinnamon. I'm sure the apples will give it a nice flavour too.

I always make my grandma'a cranberry sauce recipe. It isn't cooked---just raw fruit, nuts (opt.) and sugar or sweetener. She used 1 red delicious apple, cored (leave peel on), 1 navel orange, 1 one pound bag raw cranberries, 1/2-1 cup walnuts, chopped, sugar or sweetener to taste. This is my favorite! Being a diabetic, I sweeten some of it with artificial sweetener for me, then add sugar to the rest of it for everyone else. Toni Gommy of 5 (and "pending")

Oops---grind the fruits, 1 at a time, until pretty fine. Now days, I use my food processor, but used to use a food grinder.Do not peel the apple or the orange---the peel adds flavor and texture.I don't usually use the nuts, in case a guest has a nut allergy.

I think this sounds wonderful. I don't have a food processor so I will use my blender and just pulse it. Thank you very much.
