Fresh Cranberry Sauce Recipe: Always a hit!

Fresh Cranberry Sauce Recipe: Always a hit!

(updates at the bottom) "I hate cranberry sauce".  I have heard this phrase every singe year around Thanksgiving, and every year I laugh.  Why?  Because every year I make my fresh cranberry sauce, and it disappears.  It is gobbled up, and usually has almost no leftovers!
