I have been making cranberry sauce this way for years and years. It's so easy that you will never buy canned cranberry sauce again, and even cranberry sauce haters might like this one! Don't wait for a special occasion. This sauce is a wonderful accompaniment to poultry, meat or fish. Try adding two chopped apples and/or 1/2 cup coarse chopped walnuts along with the cranberries for a change.
