DeLena's Cranberry Sauce

Susan Feliciano


My daughter makes this every year. The recipe is on the back of the fresh cranberry package. If you stock up and freeze fresh cranberries, frozen ones will also work in this recipe. One change I have made is to substitute cranberry juice for the water. The finished product is even more flavorful! I have also used orange juice for a nice cran-orange flavor. White grape juice is another great option.
