The Best Cranberry Sauce

When it comes to cranberry sauce, we have always made the same recipe. Moreover, we make enough so we have leftovers. Admittedly, there are not too many times we have leftovers, as everyone loves this dish!

During any friends and family gathering, for a weekend, we use this cranberry sauce in our baked brie and cranberries in puff pastry.
