    This Recipe is great! I added a bit of oranje juice since I did not have enough zest and it is wonderful. Have made this a number of times,and it is rediculous to buy the canned stuff when this is so easy and much better tasting.  -  16 Nov 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This turned out tasty but it was definitely NOT as much as it advertised! I wanted 12 servings and the recipe servings was far too small. If you're making this for a group definitely triple the amount!  -  20 Nov 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    It seems rediculous to spend so much time on this. All you have to do is dissolve the sugars in the liquid, bring it to a boil, toss the cranberries in, simmer them for another 10-15 minutes until most of them have popped, cool and refrigerate. I've never heard of anyone cooking cranberries for 3 hours.  -  22 Dec 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
