I've made this recipe for years!! The apples and walnuts give a great texture to this sweet and sour dish. It is the only cranberry sauce I will ever make!! I make a huge double batch & nibble on it weeks after Thanksgiving has come and gone.

LOVE to watch your show and get ideas for cooking. Really glad to see you on so much! One thing though: when you use liquor/liquer/alcohol in the recipes, could you suggest an alternative liquid. I know the alcohol 'burns' off, but I just do not want to use it. thanks - be blessed, encouraged and keep healthy! Yolanda

I just made this with a few adjustments. I used Cointreau in place of Grand Marnier, left out the nuts and added candied ginger to the mix. My husband, who hates everything, loved it!

I didn't have Grand Marinier so I grated a teaspoon of orange peal into the water and sugar and added brandy - the taste was perfect.

Delicioussssss! Expensive,however, unless you keep Grand Marnier on hand, but well worth the expense.
