Cranberry Sauce with Bourbon

Cranberry Sauce with Bourbon


"This is my mother's recipe. Each year, she would make this for an auction. Her sauce usually sold for $12.00 an 8-ounce jar! Tastes best when it has had time to sit, for example, 2 weeks. The longer it sits, the stronger the flavours."

This has always been one of my favorites. Sometimes I cut the sugar to 3 cups for a slightly tarter flavor. Also works with brandy if you're out of bourbon.

Bourbon & cranberry converted my mother. My mother swears by and only eats canned cranberry. I used a variation of this recipe and now she makes my version every year. Actually the whole fa...

Love this recipe. It is SO easy and delish! Like the author suggests, it definitely tastes better if it "ages" for a week or two, but don't expect to have much left at that point. I used 2 cups ...

Good flavor, but too runny for me.

It was way too sweet for us (family). But, I loved the flavor, and the ease! So, I am going to try it with less white sugar and some of suggestions from the other reviews. Will let you know ...
