BackstoryOh No, this girl doesn't like cranberry! :) Well, up until now I just couldn't stand cranberry but I had it only from a can, the whole wiggly stuff that you slice! That has changed and I thank Kroger, our local grocery store for changing that! A few Saturday's ago, Kroger had a ton of samples they were handing out that were targeting Thanksgiving and one of their samples was Cranberry Celebration, and I thought what the heck, I am going to sample it because I could see the whole cranberries in it and they reminded me of a cherry and I love cherries! Oh Yes, this girl loves whole cranberries and I bought 3 tubs of it, 2 for my house and 1 for my parents! Well, we all gobbled it down and I was back at Kroger to buy more!
I decided to Google cranberry and found lots of recipes for it but the recipe I found that looked like what I was looking for had cloves in it and I don't like cloves one bit so I made it my way with idea's from the internet and I am so glad that I tried making my own because I was going to put Cranberry Celebration from Kroger out of business!
Comparing what I made to what I bought, I think what I bought was a tad sweeter than what I made so I added a tad more sugar to the recipe for the next time and trust me, there will be a next time very, very soon!
My new favorite side dish and easy, easy, easy to make!
