    I use a bag of berries, sub the sugar with splenda, use one large or two small navel oranges, , put all in processor, , store in bowl,, fits great in my diabetic/high BP, high cholesterol/allergy diet!! Maybe I will add some cinnamon to some this year for a change! - 11/10/09

    We grind up a bag of cranberries, 1 orange, 1 apple, 1 cup walnuts. Everthing is put into a container and we add 1 cup sugar and and put into refridgerator till we are ready to eat! It is so yummy on turkey sandwiches too! - 11/16/09

    I also do a similar one but even the recipe is too much sugar for me. Yes, cranberries are tart, but I HATE super sweet sides. When I use a half a cup of sugar, it tastes fine and when I bring it to whomever is doing thanksgiving, there is NEVER any leftovers. - 11/12/09
  • MRSCHAD
    I really hate it when people list something like this as 18 servings. So what do we do? Set out 18 dishes and try to evenly divide it? Why not say 1 tbs or something? Grrrr. - 3/7/11

    no need to cook - i make a raw recipe (healthier anyways) - 1 bag of berries, 1 orange, including a good amount of the peel "zested" and cinnamon. i use honey instead of sugar. - 11/16/09

    I have never liked cranberry sauce, due to the tarty flavor. I made this dish as my contribution to Thanksgiving meal. I chose not to use the food processor, b/c I wanted the chunky homemade appearance. The orange in it made a wonderful citrus taste. Delicious! I received rave reviews! - 11/28/09

    ADD APPLE, CELERY AND NUTS AND LEAVE OUT THE CLOVES AND IT'S JUST WHAT MY GRANDMOTHER USED TO MAKE AND I MAKE NOW!
    SOMETIMES I ADD CRANBERRY JELLO AND PUT IT IN A BEAUTIFUL MOLD FOR COMPANY (REDUCE THE SUGAR IF YOU DO THAT). - 11/22/09
  • CMBELISLE
    This reminds me of the Cranberry/Orange relish my mother used to make, but we never used the lemon, cloves or cinnamon. The recipe was on the bags of cranberries we bought and we also used the entire orange. We'd put everything but the sugar into a meat grinder, then add the sugar after. - 11/10/09

    I made this using frozen cranberries that I had on hand and 2 cans of mandarin oranges. I used the juice from the oranges (simply water and sugar) So I used less sugar very easy it was great tasting! - 11/27/09

    I make mine with 1/2 c. maple syrup, 1/2 c. of cran-raspberry juice, zest of 1 orange, 1 diced apple and 1 bag cranberries. After boiling, I toss in a 1/2 c of walnuts. Delicious and not too sweet. I'll try the orange and lemon juices from this recipe instead of cran-raspberry and see how it is. - 11/22/09
  • WOWEETOO
    i do mine by the bag 1 cup water and 1 cup of sugar (yes i once used splenda and had to throw it away) and cook until the berries pop any leftovers go on oatmeal in the morning assuming it's not all gone - 11/22/09

    I made and served it at thanksgiving. Everyone loved it. My husband used the leftovers for an ice cream topper. - 12/4/09
  • LOSETONEED
    I made the recipe as the ingredients were listed and my family raved about it. We will be making this side dish again next year. - 11/26/09

    I know there is no such thing as a stupid question but this one is on the border probably. What is the orange zest? The peel or the outside part? - 11/22/09
  • FLOWERDY
    I do a similar recipe but only one orange and I also add some chopped dried apricots. No cinnamon or cloves. - 11/10/09
  • GINA180847
    Orange zest is the orange peel on the outside not the white stuff if you can avoid it. Love cranberry sc. - 2/18/11

    I bet leftovers would be good on yogurt and on peanutbutter sandwich - 11/22/09
  • HAPPYGIRL1033
    I love making mine with 1 large can of crushed pineapple and one bag of fresh cranberries. Mix in a medium saucepan, cover, bring to a boil, lower to a low simmer, and let it cook gently for about 20 minutes. Stir once in a while. It's delicious and all fruit! - 11/17/14

    I'm diabetic so change the sugar to Splenda then it's doable. - 11/22/09
  • DEBBROWN2
    I needed a good recipe for cranberries ! - 11/22/09
  • WLACMOON
    mine is similar, I add more spices and cook longer. I don't put it through the blender though. I tend to make it tarter than the store bought. - 11/14/09
  • JODROX
    I'm attempting to make this right now... the ingredient list includes lemon, but the instructions never tell what to do with it. ???

    I'm still trying to figure out what to do with the 1/2lemon, juiced! I added the juice to the water, sugar and zest mixture. It looks good, without as much sugar as the usual recipe on the cranberry bag. We'll see how well my family likes it tomorrow.
