    Do you enjoy cranberry sauce? If you do, which type do you prefer plain or whole berry?

    I personally prefer whole berry!

    I make a relish. Cranberries, apples, oranges, and lemons. Nice.

    I like plain most, but only if it's home-made. I don't like the jelly from a can.

    Another vote for home made. Cranberry, apples, raisins, onions and garlic.

    this year, i'm trying a recipe from the Nov. issue of Saveur: a cranberry relish with orange peel, jalapeno, spices, and port. You quickly roast the cranberries first. i cut the sugar in half.

    Sorry, cranberry sauce is gross.

    Oddly, vodka & cranberry juice is one of my favorite summertime drinks..

    Maybe I need to try cranberry sauce in vodka and that might change my vote?

    This is a good idea in most any case.

    Canned sauce is some nasty stuff. Home made for sure, and probably better described as a relish like some of you would make: I would just stew some cranberries together with onion, garlic, a bit of maple and aged balsamic. Goes well with sauteed foie as well.

    I like cranberry relish, preferably homemade. I can't stomach the canned stuff.

    You mean a Cosmopolitan right? Here you are, your highness. *snicker*

    Anyway, cranberries are supposed to be in season right now but I can't find them anywhere; none of the stands at the farmers market carry it. I was planning on buying a few kilos of the stuff and freeze them, but it looks like that plan isn't going to work out.

    I like my cranberry sauce to still have the lines in it from the can.

    Whole berries cooked with sugar, fresh-ground clove, orange extract, and a healthy dollop of vanilla

    Agreed. Pretty much everything at Thanksgiving should be homemade except the cranberry sauce.

    Bonus - put a slice of canned cranberry sauce on your pumpkin pie, then put the whipped cream on top. You can thank me later.

    Everyone underestimates the importance of cranberry sauce. I use it almost like a dipping sauce. YUMM
