Cranberry Raspberry Sauce

When the family gets bored with plain old cranberry sauce, try this variation. It's trivial to make, and the raspberries add a wonderful aroma and flavor. Just be careful not to lose part of the berries if you cook them too quickly or over too high a heat.


Place all the ingredients in a large microwave-usable casserole. Microwave on high for 4 minutes. Stir once. Cover very loosely, and microwave on low for 5-10 minutes. Watch carefully, and discontinue cooking as soon as the berries pop open but before the mixture boils over. This is very much a function of the power of your microwave oven. The sauce also cooks quite well in a saucepan on the stove, but the same danger exists about boiling over.
