    I changed the recipe a bit based on previous reviews. I reduced the crystallized ginger by half (next time, I'll reduce it a little more), I omitted the red pepper flakes, and I added about 1/4 cup of sugar. I needed to cook a little longer than instructed as I wanted more of the cranberries to pop. Everyone who likes cranberries liked this recipe and I will use again. Note: I found that the ginger intensified on the second day. Keep this in mind if you are making a day ahead.  -  28 Nov 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is absolutely wonderful! Very light and refreshing. I did take the advice of other reviewers: used orange juice instead of water, extended the cooking time until the cranberries burst, didn't use the pepper flakes and cut the amount of crystalized ginger in half. I did, however, add some of the ginger syrup left over from making the crystalized ginger for a bit more kick. At the end of cooking, I also added some pomegranate seeds for a nice crunch. This went over so well on Thanksgiving, I had to make another batch the next day! Did I mention that it's fantastic over vanilla ice cream? Many, many thanks, Bea, for a new family favorite!  -  24 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    My 12-year old granddaughter made it with me and we both loved the recipe. A caution, however -- use less ginger because it grows stronger as time goes by. She liked it better without the peppers.  -  30 Nov 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
