Sugar ‘N’ Spice Cranberries

"My grandmother gave me the recipe for this tangy cranberry dish more than 30 years ago," says Jill Alpert of Kansas, Missouri. "It's a nice accompaniment to a traditional turkey dinner, but it also goes well with pork. I save a portion to make the cranberry gelatin salad for the next day."

    I've made this dish MANY times, since it first appeared in the magiazine. My family loves it, and I've shared it with lots of other people. The reveiws have always been great. It has led several people to start using the Taste of Home webpage.
