Flavorful simple and the only recipe I use now! I've made this for the last three years and always get compliments and requests to make this each time we have a holiday get-together. I don't change a single thing. The port works well though I would think marsala would be wonderful too. Definitely toast the walnuts if you're adding them I've made it without and liked it just as much. I let most of the cranberries pop while simmering. Dish sets perfectly and is fantastic made the day before. The cherries orange zest nutmeg wine...it's just a great mix. So easy to make and tastes like a gourmet recipe. Make this! Pros: Easy flavorful sweet tart make ahead
This is so good! I've never made cranberry sauce before and this was a total success. The cherries really make it fantastic. I used a full teaspoon of orange zest and pecans instead of walnuts. Excellent left-overs great with steel cut oats for breakfast. I'll be making it again for Christmas! Beth Milwaukee WI
This has become a regular in my rotation - easy impressive and absolutely delicious. As the others wrote- you're only limited by your imagination this is good on many different items..I love it mixed with plain yogurt and wheat germ. David Hartford CT
This was great on Thanksgiving. Used it on steelcut oatmeal the next day on pancakes the next day and on lo-fat chocolate ice cream the next day. Will definitely make it again next year. Substituted canned dark cherries for dried and used the syrup for the water. anonymous Lancaster PA
I made this for Thanksgiving & was asked to make it again for Christmas it was requested! Really enjoyed it. The only changes I made was using 1 tsp. of liquid Stevia in place of the sugar & I used a full cup of toasted walnuts instead of 3/4 c.
OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I could rave about this one EW! So glad I found this recipe....going forward I've even bought 3 extra bags of berries to keep frozen for year round use. I think this would be a delicious foil for roasted pork Swedish meatballs and many savory dishes as well as the sweet/breakfast ideas other commentors mentioned. Glad I listened to the pro liquor people......I added Marsala and it was perfect. Easy to make makes a good amount and thickens so well. Can't wait til turkey day - thanks!
OMG!!!!!!!!!! Super delicious! So good infact that I went back to my grocery store & bought 4 bags of cranberries to keep in the freezer. This would be so good with savory foods Swedish Meatballs Roasted Chicken/Pork as well. I used Marsala wine and a tad more orange zest. It thickens well as stated as it sits. Great recipe!
This is so incredibly delicious and soooo easy to make. I made for Thanksgiving and made the day before. I heated up briefly in the microwave just to warm up to room temp. Everyone loved it. I froze the leftovers and ate with some chicken. Will definitely be making again and again and again.
