Author Notes: My mom always made this on Thanksgiving when I was growing up. I always look forward to seeing the first batch of fresh cranberries arrive so I can get my fix! Mom always made it with walnuts. But, living in TX, I usually use my local pecans. It's all good! —caramiller
Serves a big bowl full

- Place cranberries in a saucepan with just enough water that they are floating.
- Bring to boil and then let simmer for about 15-20 minutes until the cranberries break apart.

- Add sugar if you prefer sweeter, but the pineapple really sweetens it up enough for my taste buds.
