Everybody has their favorite version of cranberry sauce! Jellied or whole-it's always on the Thanksgiving table! It really is a very versatile side, it goes great with a turkey dinner, but just as well with ham. Cranberry sauce is a great condiment on sandwiches as well. My family loves my "kicked up" version that includes port wine and toasted walnuts! I always have to double the recipe!
