My husband does not eat sugar, so I used honey for the sweetener. This was a terrific addition to our Thanksgiving dinner. Even my spice intolerant friend enjoyed the tang of the horseradish!

This sauce went great with my rib roast dinner on Christmas. But, next time I will have to add a tad more horseradish to have with my roast. Super easy to make, too. Thanks.

I used two cups of sugar and a little less horseradish. But this is a great recipe if you want to try something different this year!!!

I was looking to match a Cranberry Horseradish Jam that was made by Stonewall Kitchens (it seems to have been discontinued). This comes pretty close but is more of a relish than a jam.

I was interested when I read this recipe, so I thought I would try it - WOW, am I glad I did! This cranberry sauce it really good - almost everyone liked it, and the guys all went back for more! This sauce is great with turkey, but equally good with ham as well! It doesn't need to be saved for only for Thanksgiving either - it would be great on game day with sandwiches! I know I will be making this for years to come!

This didn't quite set up as much as I'd like and I really wanted more horseradish flavor. If I make it again I'll double or triple the horseradish.

This is a different and delicious sauce. I'm always looking for something with a twist of flavor. I too added a half cup more sugar to taste. Thanks for the recipe.
