This is actualy the sauce served with turkey... but lill'old me found many usings for it after a Thanksgiving too many left overs.

This is not sweet but tangy and very fragrant. Could be served on bread and butter also.

I don't think it will work with dried cranberries, you need the juice and if not then you need to soak them for along time and use some juice on the side.

I have never used the dried cranberies... so don't know what to tell you.
Don't know if the real taste will be there either.

Thanks! I'll definitely give this a try, one day... The berries are in the freezer now. I'm so excited over this! I bought the fresh cranberries while KC was under maintenance and I only know we eat it with Turkey, don't know what else to do with it. In the end, I blended it with some orange and we have cranberry orange juice Wink

I don't think it'll work with dried cranberries too. Dried cranberries are sweetened and there's no juice.

Also, fresh cranberries "can't" be eaten on it's own, at least to me as they are simply too sour (I can't take sour stuff) and the skin has a weird after taste.

Vi, my colleague just gave me a package of fresh cranberry because she didn't know what to do with it. Can I use this sauce with scones?

Yes LeeLee, you can use it anyway you want... even on toast... it is very tasty. It is more like a jam... only is not canned.
I had 2 containers in the freezer for a good 6 months and is as tasty as if I made it yesterday.

Thanksgiving time I buy 10 lb and make this sauce so I can have it for a long time. Here too is hard to find the fresh cranberry... but on Thanksgiving time I can find them easy.

Finally did your cranberry sauce today. Decided to blend it slightly to make it smoother.

Was really so good, that I just had to bake a loaf of bread to compliment your cranberry sauce



Thanks Vi for another winner.

Linda ... thank you for trying... it is very good endeed. I will make very soon, about 10 lb. I use it very much. I like mine with chunks in it, but if youlike it smooth, yes you could blend.

Peony... peeled of course.

:roll: What a goon I am. I didn't peel the apple skin. Silly me! Luckily I blended my sauce.

No wonder my dd, who loves the sauce, said, "mummy, are you sure you are suppose to leave the skin on? It's kind of hard." :lol:

:lol: as some of us say, "common sense is not that common after all". Thanks for putting it in your recipe. Good for a tootsie like me.

Just had it with a slice of bread. Hmmm .... I'm in heaven .... Yummy! Can just imagine it with roast beef or ham.

Ladies, you really really have to give this sauce a try.

Just having a little smile on our face is precious... that's all girls.... you are sweet.

Happy you like the sauce... yes, as I said in the recipe I had it for many many years.... where I cannot even remember how I've got it. If someone comes across to a similar recipe with the name of the owner I would like to know it too Smile)

People here buy the sauce in the can.... but it is nasty in taste. I rather make my own. If you have a chance to buy the fresh cranbery, buy it now and make the sauce... it keeps wonderful in the freezer.
I had it for a year and is still tastes fresh.
