If you think you don't like cranberry sauce, you probably have only had the nasty canned variety. I was one of those people. I hated cranberry sauce until I tried the homemade variety.
Take a trip to the store for the following:
Put cranberries, honey, and juice in a sauce pot. (Make sure it's plenty big enough. Sauce will rise) Heat to a boil. Let boil until berries are popping. This will sound like popcorn. When the popping slows down, turn off heat. If you like it chunky, you're done. I like mine smooth, so I scoop out the berries, pulse a couple times in the blender, and then pour back into the saucepot. Give it a stir, and you're done.
I highly suggest making extra to freeze or can. The last two years I haven't had ANY left over to enjoy the next day.

Wow, my step-daughter and I were talking about this yesterday but neither of us had a recipe, LOL. This sounds so easy and yummy. Just might have to make some before Christmas. Thanx so very much for sharing :0) (11/27/2007)
I make a recipe very similar but I use brown sugar and add some orange marmalade. (11/27/2007)
