"This is one of my favorites cranberry sauce recipes, amounts may be doubled and you may adjust the sugar amount -- don't even think about making this using concentrated juice from a can or box you might as well use all water, although you could use half water and half fresh squeezed orange juice, I say for the best taste use all fresh orange juice!"

Great easy recipe. Love the orange, lemon addition. When it was finished cooking I added 2 tablespoons of spiced Captain Morgan Rum. I will separate the full recipe into 4 zip lock bags and freeze them for further cranberry occasions. Thanks Kitten this recipe is a winner 13 Oct 2014.
