Published: November 16, 2007 at 11:28 AMJelly is the only way to go. It just isn't Thanksgiving without the cranberry-jelly-log still-in-the-shape-of-the-can-it-came-out-of on the table. :-D
Published: November 16, 2007 at 11:52 AMIts just wrong, sweet and savory should not be mixed. Yuk!
Published: November 16, 2007 at 4:05 PMOooooo, neither on this one. My Puerto Rican family doesnt use cranberry sauce, and i doubt they even know what it is. Shocking, isnt it?
Published: November 16, 2007 at 5:22 PMIn my family, we always ate the jelly kind, but I recently started liking the whole berry kind better. I like to be the black sheep. ;)
Published: November 16, 2007 at 10:32 PMI have to admit that I like both kinds. But I voted for jelly on sheer sentiment. My Mother's Thanksgiving table would never be complete without the can of jellied cranberry sauce sliced and fanned out on a plate. As I child, I absolutely loved the stuff...I probably ate half the can! Childhood memories...just one more thing to be thankful for.

Is that a trick question?!
Published: November 17, 2007 at 5:32 AMWhole berry is yucky! Plus it is easier to make a leftover sandwich with the jelly!
Published: November 17, 2007 at 7:47 AMI do like the jelly, but a good cooked whole-berry sauce is better. My grandmother makes a very good one. (She also makes an uncooked relish, but this I don't really like--too bitter.)
I like it just by itself in small quantities as a side item. It's OK on turkey but gravy is MUCH better. :-)
Published: November 17, 2007 at 4:28 PMSeveral years ago, my wife and I went to a T-Day dinner party. The dinner was great.....however....on the way home, we both said to each other, "THERE WAS NO CRANBERRY SAUCE!!!!!".......we could not believe it. It was a horrifying experience! :-)
Jellied all the way!!!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

Published: November 18, 2007 at 12:12 AMIt wouldn't be thanksgiving with all the ridges on that log of jellied cranberry sauce for my family. This holiday seriously is my favorite. Beer, football, turkey and family. there is no substitute for that.
Published: November 20, 2007 at 5:53 AMI grew up with the can, but my wife makes the whole berry and with a touch of orange, I do like it better.
