Dear Barbara: Holidays are just around the corner, and I have been thinking of new and different things I could make. I found a great recipe for a cranberry type sauce. I have tried to make cranberry sauce in the past, but no matter how simple the recipe, mine just has this bitter taste. Adding more sugar does not fix it. Did I miss something? — Evelyn from Acampo
Dear Evelyn: I had the same problem when I first started making my own cranberry sauce. I found out that you should cook them just until they pop. Further cooking will make them bitter, and once that happens, you need to start again. I don’t think people would buy the canned cranberry sauce as often if they knew how easy it is to make, and you can add wonderful things to it, like orange zest, etc. It can also be made days ahead, which is a big time saver.
