I really liked this. i used sweet pink Catawba instead of dry wine ( because i didn't have anything else). Really delicious! You could even put it on toast! Recipe made almost exactly on pint sized canning jar.

This is very good. I made as written with a couple of minor exceptions. I added a dash of vanilla to smooth out the flavor and used grated orange zest rather than strips. I think next time I'll try a red wine with a little sweetness.

Excellent! We were eating it with a spoon. I used a cabernet, definite keeper!

Delicious! Everyone enjoyed it, even those who say they just like "regular" cranberry sauce. I have also made it with half orange juice and half red wine.

The whole family loved it. Even my kids, who never liked cranberry relish before, thought it was amazing.

Have made something very similar for years as the cranberry sauce for our Thanksgiving table. I like the addition of the cinnamon stick. Yummy!

I make this recipe every year and it's always a big hit. I add more orange zest than is called for with a little hint of vanilla as well. Trim with mint sprigs in a clear glass dish for gorgeous color on your holiday table.
