Mealthy Tip

The sugar becomes liquid, which counts for part of your "minimum liquid" for the pot to come to pressure. Use maple syrup, honey, or agave nectar if you prefer natural sweeteners over white and brown sugar. Try adding a teaspoon lemon zest and 2 tablespoons lemon juice for even more of a citrus flavor. Want a crunch to your cranberry sauce? Add 1/2 cup walnuts or pecans after the sauce is cooked.

I reversed the sugar, more brown (used brown coconut sugar), less white. This is really good! No more cans for this ol' broad. This is one of those you can make the day before!

Love this recipe. Tart like it should be. Will post a picture of the final product showing how much I got using 2 twelve ounce bags of fresh cranberries purchased in the grocery store. I set the sauté mode for 5 minutes and now it’s cooling.

This recipe made me look like a gourmet cook! I cut the recipe in half and added 1.5 -2 Tablespoons Jameson Irish Whiskey (as Antonia George suggested) and some Cinnamon Pear and White Balsamic for a little added sweetness. My guests stated it was the "best cranberry sauce they've ever had" ~ especially the men! We only had about 3 Tablespoons left and it was plenty for serving 9 people!

I added a little whiskey to this recipe, it's one of my favorite secret ingredients to mix in for cranberry sauce. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out perfect. So much easier than baking or cooking on the stove top.

This is a timeless, classic cranberry sauce recipe that drastically cuts the cooking time down. I also added pecans at the very end, as the recipe suggested. Best idea ever!

I added half the amount of orange zest and substituted water for the orange juice and this was still too strong of an orange flavor for my taste. But others loved it, so make of that what you will.

So quick and easy. Way too bitter for me so I added honey and some more brown sugar in the sauté. And some bourbon which really stands out when it is cold.
