This Homemade Cranberry Sauce is unlike any other I've eaten. It is loaded with cranberries, apples, oranges, pecans, ginger and cinnamon. It not only tastes delicious, it smells AMAZING!!! The house smelled like the holidays when I was making this Homemade Cranberry Sauce. The original recipe included raisins. Chicken Legs isn't a raisin fan, so I usually leave them out. If you want to add raisins, you need a half of a cup.

This recipe for Homemade Cranberry Sauce came from my childhood next door neighbor. We lived next to the nicest couple, The Livingston's. Mr. Livingston was a WWII veteran, he was at D-Day. Mrs. Livingston was the perfect Southern lady; always put together and extremely nice.

Every year at the holidays, Mrs. Livingston would invite us over to see their Christmas tree, and she gave my brother and me a Christmas ornament. I still have those ornaments on my tree today! Mrs. Livingston was also a great cook! She shared many delicious treats and recipes with our family. This Homemade Cranberry Sauce is one of our favorites!
