Rated 4 out of 5 by Cheri from Orange Cranberry Sauce I love the combination of citrus with cranberries, but my results were too tart. I used Clementines because that's what was in my fruit basket. Perhaps blood oranges or another, sweeter variety works better. Nevertheless, I recommend this recipe. I had to add another 1/4 cup sugar, though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Momma Doug from Make it every Thanksgiving! Love this recipe just the way it is. I make it every year, whether I’m hosting or taking to another gathering. It’s a unique crowd pleaser.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Debbie Sue from Not Good For Me. I followed this recipe to the tee with daunting results. The flavors were completely off. Too much orange and not enough sugar to balance the cranberries. Additional spices of cloves and allspice would have been a nice compliment if the recipe had not been so off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Penpen from Great with roast pork too! I didn’t have any oranges so I substituted orange juice and it was still delicious. My nephew who doesn’t like anything except meat and mashed potatoes absolutely loved it. It will definitely be a staple at our holiday dinners both Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sweet Leda from Will Make Every Year Wow. I really loved it! I added some ground ginger. I looooooove how the recipe calls for oranges instead of orange juice. I used coconut palm sugar instead of brown and it worked great! So flavorful. Can't wait to make it again.
