I usually don't write reviews, but I felt I had to do it for this recipe. I made this sauce for last thanksgiving and It is the best cranberry sauce I've ever had!. I used to make mine with just OJ but adding the maple and the tangerine gives the sauce such a complex amazing flavor, specially if made a couple of days in advance. It is a step up on the classic cranberry sauce. Everyone loved it! Btw I only used 1/4 cup of sugar because I don't like anything too sweet and I think it was the perfect amount of sweetness.
This cranberry sauce is very good BUT you definitely need a BAG of tangerines to obtain 2 cups. Recipe calls for 5 to 6. Perhaps they meant 1/2 cup and we're using 2 cups which ends up making it very very sweet. I think this year I will try 1/2 cup.
