Triple Cranberry Sauce

Cranberry fans will ask for this sauce again and again. It's loaded with their favorite fruit—in fresh, dried and juice form. Orange and allspice make it awesome. —Arlene Smulski, Lyons, Illinois

    I’ve made this time and again in the years since coming across this recipe, and it gets “gobbled up” and heaps of complements. It’s so delicious I sometimes hesitate to share! However, it is equally easy to make so I can be generous and share this delicious treat. Prior to making this recipe I had no idea homemade cranberry sauce could be so easy or so delicious! I’ve kicked the can for good!

    The change I'd made was making the sauce as the recipe directed, but then stirring 1 package of raspberry jello with 2 cups water and using a jello mold. I recall making this recipe again, but without the jello. Both times, the recipe was really good. One thing: I know NOT to use jello for this recipe and prepare it just as is which was what I'd done the 2nd time!

    This homemade cranberry sauce is easy and sooo much better than canned! I will never look back to the latter! Made sure my sister-in-law knew I was making it for Thanksgiving so she wouldn't bring the canned as she usually does. (Please, I'm not being ungrateful, she makes a whole extra turkey/ stuffing/ mashed potatoes every year which is a great help as we always have a mob, so this is one less thing she has to do!) Use leftovers in place of butter or mayo in sandwiches. I like the suggestion of Amaretto (which I love) by Psalm 127-3 and will try it next time (and I did look up the Bible verse). Also, I think I will double the allspice too; 1/4 teaspoon was not enough.

    I actually reviewed below under "Cindy". I still love this sauce. Making it for Christmas with some changes to be less sweet.

    Great idea to combine fresh, dried and juiced cranberries together with the orange and allspice. Everyone enjoyed this at our Thanksgiving table.

    My oh my, this is very delicious but way too sweet. I will make this again but will use Truvia to sweeten, processed cranberry juice and most likely fresh squeezed orange juice. We found that it could use less allspice also. But, that's our tastes. All in all much better than processed cranberries.

    Since I’m a LEO this is for me to make. Love this kinda side dish does so much for the rest of the meal. Only thing that makes it better is cutting OJ to 1T and adding 2T Amaretto liquor plus toasted sliced almonds on top of presentation. Crazy good
