Yummy, yummy, yummy! I thank you as well as your Mom for such a wonderful addition to our Thanksgiving dinner. I used pecans rather than walnuts but the result was great. It is very pretty as well!

The orange was to powerful and was really sweet... Every year I try to find a cranberry dish to serve. And every year we all go back to the can. Not going to give up I refuse. Lol.

My husband loved it, I would reduce sugar and use sugarless marmalade next time, though. Was a hit!

This was delicious! I loved the flavor of the orange marmalade and the crunch of the walnuts. Definitely better than plain cranberry sauce! And it was easy to make too. I plan on making this again.

This had great texture and flavor, but was a little sweet for my taste. I will definitely try it again, but maybe use 1/2 the sugar. Used the leftovers over a brick of cream cheese and spread over crackers.

I thought this was really tasty. I think my family members are used to the "canned" taste and preferred the Ocean Spray jelly type. I however, thought it was really good. I like cranberries and nuts and liked the crunch from the nuts. It was a nice dish to serve for guests. I did rinse the cranberries and put them through a chopper prior to using.

Fantastic!!! Rave reviews all around the table. Thank you for sharing.

This was tasty. I cut the sugar down to 1/2 c. The lemon was a little over powering. But by day 3 it had become milder. I'll cut the lemon in half next time. Thanks for the recipe.
