This doesn't sound like it would become a "sauce" since the cranberries would still be chunky. Do you mash and strain the cranberries out to get a true sauce?
Brenda, maybe you are looking for more of a cranberry jelly? In this recipe, the cranberries burst and soften, but the sauce remains chunky and textured with the cranberries remaining in as they are. Hope that helps.
