I needed to try this recipe before serving it to 28 guests this Thanksgiving. 1st, I made this recipe exactly as specified. I did see the words.. "simmer until cranberries pop" and decided to use "frying screen" over the pot. Thank goodness! LOL The recipe is marvelous as it is. Then I made it a 2nd time, using 1 bag cranberries, 1/2 cup brown and 1/2 cup of white sugar, 2/3 cup OJ and 1/4 cup of water. I couldn't justify boiling down Gran Manier, so I added 2 Tablespoons AFTER the berry mixture was done heating. LUCIOUS!!!! Remember to use a spatter screen and let the sauce set for at least 4 hours. Perfect consistancy and texture as well as flavors. YUM!
never gelled for me...
Excellent as is without any changes. thanks for this excellent recipe!
This was wonderful sauce. I made it especially for my Dad as he loves cranberry sauce with his turkey. Both him and my grandmother raved at how awesome it was. I did make a few changes as suggested by other reviewers: I used half white & half brown sugar, half water & half orange juice. I also put just a touch (probably less than 1/8 tsp) of cinnamon. Thank you so much for sharing such a great recipe - it made a wonderful addition to my family's Thanksgiving dinner!
I just made this minutes ago and it is wonderful! I did do some changes as suggested by previous reviews. I did 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup orange juice, 1/2 cup water. I also let it simmer longer than 10 minutes..about 20 and mashed the cranberries. It is the perfect constancy. Can't wait to serve this tommorrow.
I could not stand cranberry sauce before this. All I had ever tasted was the kind straight out of the can. But, my family loves to have it for their turkey, and I can't deny them that. However, I figured I could make it from scratch and see if they liked that even better. Boy, did they. My hubby and 11 yr. old nephew were eating it by the spoonfuls! I decided to give it a little taste since everyone was going on so much about it. OMG!!! It was awesome! I couldn't believe the difference in having fresh cranberry sauce. I will definitely have a little something at every holiday now to dress up my sliced turkey! And I will never disgrace my family with the canned stuff again. I took a few suggestions and used half white sugar, half brown, and added 1/4 tsp. of cinnamon. AMAZING!!!
This reminds me of my grandmother's sauce. I also did half white, half brown sugar and added 1/8 tsp of cinnamon and about 1/2 tsp of grated orange zest. It is easy to make and delicious.
I don't eat cranberries, but everyone in my family thinks this is fantastic. They can't believe how easy it is to make! I hollowed out a large orange to serve it in, and used cinnamon sticks for garnish, which made a great presentation and enhanced the flavor.
