    Does it make a lot? Would it be okay to double the recipe?

  2. Marilyn Kidd says:

    Do you use the old fashion “crock” style pot, or the newer ones with the black crocks that cook much hotter and are more versatile? . Because the newer one, I find, scorches and burns things on the bottom and cooks too fast! Marilyn K.

  3. Daphne says:

    What size crockpot do you need? I have several but some are huge and some are REALLY small. Not sure which would be best!

    • Heidi says:

      Hi Daphne ~ I used a 4 quart to make this, but it would also work well in a 5 or 6 quart if that’s what you have. Hope that helps! ;)

      • Daphne says:

        Thank you!! Could you even go smaller than the 4 qt? I’ve got a dip sized one and one in between, was thinking about that one since we will take it to someone else’s house.

      • Daphne says:

        My tiny crockpot is 2 qt and this fits perfectly! Can’t wait to try it! (Our thanksgiving is tomorrow!)

  4. Paula says:

    Do you serve the cranberry sauce hot? I have always served it cold. Just asking. This recipe sounds yummy!

  5. April says:

    I will use the orange juice instead of water and sub the orange marmalade for Smuckers orange-pineapple preserves, i love the addition of pineapple in this. I thought about using crushed pineapple and keeping the marmalade. Decisions, decisions. :)

  6. Lisa says:

    I suck at cooking but at the age of 40 I am determined to bring something to the table at my parents house this year. My husband is the chef at my house but he gladly is letting me take the reins on this one. This looks like something I can’t screw up to much, so with me luck!!!!!

    • Heidi says:

      You can do it, Lisa!! ;)

    • Bee says:

      Lisa, I just found this and loved your comment! you’re so funny!….do you have a blog? you should! wondered if you did ok in the cooking dept….i’m in your boat at 50! didn’t have much time while getting the career going! now i’m having fun exploring and experimenting… hope 2014 finds you reaching your goals!!

  7. I’m going to make this for christmas, thanks for the recipe!

  8. This was delish and so easy to make. I only made one adjustment. I added a little more sugar because it was a little too tart for my taste so I added enough to suit me. Other than that it was awesome. I love the orange marmalade. This will be a tradition from now on, I think. Thanks for sharing!

  9. Angie Smith says:

    Can I freeze or can?

  10. Cyndi says:

    How long can it be store in a mason jar for? Can it be reheated?

    I’m thinking of maybe making this and selling it as a fundraiser for my sons classroom.

    Thanks so much!

  11. Janet Fazio says:

    I’ve never been able to find canned sauce that doesn’t contain high fructose corn syrup. I’ll abandon my search and try this recipe instead!

  12. Tamera says:

    how long can you store this in the fridge?

  13. Marj Rowe says:

    What is the process to can these?

  14. Tyanne Sullivan says:

    Made this last night. Needed it to be as low in sugar as possible. Used xylitol instead of sugar. Also added a sugar free raspberry jello and 1/2 a bag of frozen mixed berries. Fit perfectly in my small 1quart crock pot. Plan on using it on low carb cream cheese crapes.

  15. Shauna lindo says:

    I’d like to can this and give to neighbors as a gift. How long would you process this? Water bath? How much does one recipe yield? Thank you! I’m stoked about this recipe!

  16. Tina Cross says:

    Sounds perfectly easy and since we are traveling I’m going to give it a try with the addition of toasted pecans. I like some crunch in my cranberries =)

  17. Super easy to put together. I used homemade canned citrus marmalade along with a little homemade peach marmalade. I did double the recipe. I’m wishing I would have tripled it. I might have to make another batch tomorrow. I’ve got it in a jar in my fridge for Thanksgiving on Thursday.

  18. Nanette says:

    This is the best recipe! Of course I always read my recipes wrong and usually dont catch myself until it is too late! Well this one you can do this with! I thought we were to use 3/4 of the large jar of marmalade (which is 16oz) so I found a 12oz jar and used the entire jar! lol! Well it turned out beautifully! I am adding jalopenos for the next batch to see how it works out. While cooking it smells amazing and I got to use my smaller slow cooker, the 1 1/2 qt size. plenty of room. Thanks for this recipe~ will be using this forever!
