Cranberry sauce is a staple on most Thanksgiving tables. It adds a wonderful zest to that perfectly roasted Turkey.

Every family has their own traditional recipe they use to make this must have dish.

I have altered our family recipe to be a little less tart. My niece, who never ate cranberry sauce, now Loves it.

Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
