Maple-Honey Cranberry Sauce

This recipe is simple, quick and a family favorite. It's delicious as a garnish for turkey or other meat entrees. I'll often make a double batch so we have extra to spread on toast or even use as a topping on desserts. —Rebecca Israel, Mansfield, Pennsylvania

    Super simple and very sweet. It tastes more like a dessert than a fruity side dish!

    Made this for Thanksgiving and it was a huge hit. Super easy and delicious. Perfect accompaniment to our turkey and ham. Loved the addition of maple syrup and honey. Sweet enough, but the tart cranberries still came through. Keeping this one handy!

    So easy and absolutely delicious. I used the leftovers in another Taste of Home recipe, Turkey Cranberry Bagels.

    Good recipe. I love cranberries. Had some applesauce that needed to be used, so I added a tablespoon to the cranberry sauce. It added another taste dimension.

    Love and brag about this recipe. Look forward to making this again for the holidays. I buy local honey and syrup so it is a total out of this world experience.

    Soooo good. the honey and maple syrup add the desired sweetness with a richer flavor than sugar. We loved this with our Thanksgiving dinner.
