I have one thing to say about this recipe, DELICIOUS! It was a hit at our Thanksgiving table. I already have a request to bring to family Christmas party.

Made for Thanksgiving, everyone loved it and said it would replace the regular cranberries we usually have.

This was very good, even better the secnd day. However, mine didn't set as well as I would have liked, so would probably decrease the water a little bit the next time to see.
