  1. I’ve been making the cranberry sauce for the past couple of years with the same recipe but I think I will try this recipe this year. Sounds so yummy!

  2. SO amazing, making it now and it smells amazing, and tastes amazing. LOVE LOVE IT.

  3. In Germany, we can not get fresh cranberries ;-(

  4. Do you have to add apples? If you don’t does recipe need to be altered

  5. Carol Gilmore says

    How much water?

  6. I doubled the recipe and I’m trying to cook it right now but it is not cooking down and it’s been about an hour. Does it need to be mashed when all said and done? Should it be refrigerated overnight and is it served hot or cold?
