Cranberry Sauce

there are two kinds of people in this world.  
those that like whole cranberry sauce and those that eat the jellied variety.  
okay, maybe there are three, those who would prefer their turkey smothered in gravy.
up until i met mr handsome, i wasn't even aware that you could buy cranberry sauce in a can, our family always made it from scratch.   
i love the flavour of this delicious red fruit mixed with orange.  a little brown sugar and some added texture in the form of dried fruit, and you now have a killer topping for your turkey.  unless of course you are a gravy some people I know.
