Until I tasted this recipe, I never knew that Cranberries had such amazing and intense flavor! The best part is that you can (and should) make these a couple days in advance of eating them, which makes preparing for Thanksgiving a bit less stressful). These are the most delicious Cranberries you'll ever eat.
