"Homemade cranberry sauce is very easy and, as long as you sell it properly, your true motives (maximum love for minimum effort) will be our secret. By sell it, I mean tell all about your secret tangerine/cherry-spiked version sauce, and how involved it is to make. Of course, since it is a top-secret recipe, you'll not be able to give details, but you're sure they'll be blown away." — Chef John

This recipe is a keeper. Everyone loved it. I had a couple guest that said they did not like cranberries......but they loved it!
Made for Christmas dinner with ham - delicious, and did not change a thing! Next time would probably use only 3/4 c. sugar.
Great recipe! Tried this at Thanksgiving and making this again for Christmas dinner. I was never a fan of whole cranberry sauce, but this one is incredible!! I could eat this be the spoonful.
I made this for Thanksgiving and it was awesome! Loved the dried cherries as it gave it a nice texture. Tangerines are a nice suprise since Oranges are used in so many recipes. I would definetly make this again....I may even add other dried fruit as an addition to the dried cherries!
This is a very tasteful dish. I used fresh tangerine juice and the flavor really came through. This is now our tranditional holiday crandberry dish.
It tasted so good, but I used an orange instead tangerine of the and i didnt use any cherries.!!!! I was so good!!!!!
Tried this yesterday (T-day) and my wife said that we've just replaced our old cranberry sauce recipe permanently.
I am not a huge fan of cloves, but this is still pretty excellent. It allowed me to use up some dried cherries I had on hand. I was looking for a new twist on the standard cranberry sauce in a can, and this recipe did the trick. It's a little labor intensive, but worth the time. It's a good side dish to bring if it's a potluck type gathering, but if you are trying to cook the rest of a big meal, may be a little too distracting (though you could make it ahead since it will keep in the refrigerator for awhile).
