Ingredients:  
12 oz whole fresh cranberries
1 ¼ cup granulated sugar (can substitute Truvia or Splenda for part of sugar for lower calories/sugar)
1 ½ cup of walnuts, broken up or diced
2 seedless oranges, peeled and sectioned, cut into ½"-¾" pieces
1 cup raisins

Directions:
Directions:
Boil cranberries in one cup of cold water, covered, for 15 minutes. Sieve the cranberries through a colander or food mill on a coarse setting. (You want a lumpy paste like chunky applesauce, not a puree)

Place cranberries in a pot with one cup of boiling water, sugar, walnuts, oranges, and raisins. Bring to low boil and let boil for 30 minutes. That's it! If you can make it a day in advance and let chill overnight, it will be even tastier.

Cousin George Carfagno provided me with this recipe and this hilarious anecdote:
I didn’t include Aunt Fran’s “secret ingredient”. Years ago, Aunt Fran and Uncle Jules were hosting Thanksgiving at their Hawthorne house and Aunt Fran had prepared a big batch of the special cranberry sauce. She mentioned to my mom that she had been chewing gum while she was preparing the dinner but had somehow “misplaced” her gum.
Well, when I was eating the cranberry sauce, I was surprised at how chewy and minty one of the walnuts was in her sauce. It’s surprising how much used chewing gum looks like a chopped walnut when it’s covered with cranberry sauce! I didn’t mention it to Aunt Fran until after dinner, but she must have brought it up every Thanksgiving for 10 years after that.
