  • I used 1/3 cup agave nectar instead of sugar and added 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon. It was delish! By the way, the Ocean Spray packaging says to use only one cup of water. Although it takes longer to cook this way, two cups is way better! - 1/7/09

  • I love cranberries this way but I substitute the sugar with Splenda and it works just as well with fewer calories. This recipe is so simple that you can easily make just a couple servings if you wish. I also have added a little orange Gran Marnier liquor for a kick to it. I like it warm best. - 10/11/08
