    Elmotoo's Note:

    Now THIS is worth writing home about, so here I am! I wanted to do something different with my cranberry sauce this year. Enough of the citrus, no shallots for making compote...vanilla! I have a few dried out beans that I've been hoarding! Now that we have a supply of fresh beans, time to use the old - why not drop one in the cranberry sauce? How bad could it be? OMG.....it was divine!!! Vanilla sugar adds extra vanilla flavr but you can certainly use regular sugar.

      We loved this! The vanilla adds such a nice mellow flavor! I used a 12 oz bag of cranberries, 2/3 cup water but all the sugar.

      I served this for Thanksgiving… finally a cranberry sauce people will eat! A week before, I measured 1 cup a sugar in a jar and threw in a vanilla bean. So when I was ready to make this dish I just threw in the contents of the jar into the cranberries. Thanks for posting! YUMM!
