Dennis' Wonderful Cranberry Sauce- Pam's

Pam Ellingson


My neighbor, Dennis, is quite a good cook, and one of his favorite dishes to take to Thanksgiving dinners is his special cranberry sauce. This is truly wonderfully tasty. Try it with your next Turkey dinner (Or put some on a leftover turkey sandwich for a punch of flavor)
