Comments

My sister-in-law make actual stewed cranberries this year, and was shocked at how easy it was. I'm actually up for making them myself sometime.
My recipe uses fresh cranberries, tangerine juice (from the gourmet produce section), honey, raisins, and dried fruit bits. Simmer until cranberries pop. Keeps frozen, or you can can it following standard canning procedures. I impressed a culinary school graduate with it at my family's Thanksgiving last year.
