Written by Susan H

Mums Rapid Cranberry Sauce is an essential part of Thanksgiving and Christmas meals. The sweetness yet sharpness of the sauce compliments the roast turkey dish. Served as a sauce and side dish. However used in turkey sandwiches is a pleasure all to its self. Ideal for making in advance and keeping chilled until needed.
