Well, I love cranberry sauce. I've made 4 batches of it already this year. We eat it a lot at dinner with whatever else is on the table and I love it on plain yohurt for a snack.

This is the reicpe I use:
1 bag cranberries
juice & grated peel from 1 oraganic orange
about 1/4 -1/3 cup maple syrup (depending on how juicy the orange was and how tart you like your sauce)
a couple dashes of cinnamon
about 1/2 tsp powdered ginger
about 1/2 tsp powdered cardamon

Cook all together on medium heat until cranberries have popped.

I like it warm and cold.

Cranberry bread is yummy too. Sorry, can't remember a recipe off the top of my head...

watering as I type this thinking about it. It's a def. sweet tart flavor.

Momalea I made your recipe and
it's saving that cobblers life for now
I'll have to make up some more, it's REALLY good!! I used 1 1/2 orange and then about 1/4 cup syrup since that's all i had left and it's still really good!

reeseccup-I'm glad you liked the recipe. I don't bother to follow the recipe exactly anymore and each time there's more or less or any given ingredient and it always tastes yummy!

Cranberry Compote
1/2 pound fresh cranberries
1 tablespoon grated orange zest
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 cups water
3 tablespoons cornstarch
Put the cranberries, orange and lemon zest, orange and lemon juice, sugar, vanilla, and 1 1/2 cups of the water in a medium-size nonreactive saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil and cook for 8 minutes.
Dissolve the cornstarch in the remaining 1/2 cup of water and add to the pan. Reduce the heat to medium, then stir constantly until the mixture thickens, about 2 minutes.
Remove from heat and cool

If you just keep simmering them down, with very little juice added, they set up as a gel when cooled.

If they like the super-weird, "almost cran-free" kind, you could probably press it through a strainer or a chinois before cooling it.

I WISH!! I'm still burried in boxes, and can't find my recipe box
: which has this recipe in it.

I'm thinking of making the above Compote *which I recall was similar* and putting a crisp topping on it before baking.

Our family's cranberry salad recipe is pretty simple. Copied from a blog entry from my veg days. I've made it both ways. It makes a lot more salady stuff than one realizes.

Cranberry Salad

1 lb. cranberries
1 orange
2 apples
2- 3-oz. jello (I use SuperFruitz, by Hain, because I'm vegetarian. I chose raspberry. mom used cranberry and lemon jello, though she sometimes uses cherry)
2 cups sugar
2 C. boiling water.

Grind cranberries, orange, apples and add sugar. Let set.
Add jello to boiling water. Mix all together and chill until firm.
