    This cranberry sauce sounds great! I love, love, love cranberry sauce (so much I make it all November and December as a side for dinner). Definitely may be giving this one a try soon

      Glad to hear I’m not the only one who eats cranberry sauce on days that aren’t holidays!

    This looks lovely! When you say to add everything except the sugar are you referring to the white sugar only? So the brown sugar would still go in with the port, balsamic, figs, herbs, etc.? Thanks!

      Sorry about the confusion. I updated the recipe. Yes, add the brown sugar, but not the white sugar.

    Hello, made this cranberry sauce and it was great. Loved the flavors in it. We also made traditional cranberry sauce (with OJ) so I do have both kinds leftover. Can’t wait to bake with both of them in some muffins. Thanks

      Glad you enjoyed it. I have some leftover too. I think I’m going to make some bars out of the leftovers…
