    I will just say this right up front– homemade cranberry sauce just tastes better in my opinion.  And this cranberry pomegranate sauce actually tastes like cranberries with hints of orange and pomegranate.

    Plus, when you make your own cranberry sauce you get to decide how sweet you like it.  This version is slightly sweet and slightly tart.  Nothing overpowering each other.

    I think it pairs beautifully with roasted turkey and there are lots of ideas for ways to use up that leftover sauce.  Try making muffins with it or a coffee cake.  Both are good and maybe I will try to squeeze a recipe in for one of them.
