How much cranberry sauce do you think I should use to equal the dried cranberries? I want to use the sauce instead of the fruit because I am not a fan of the whole cranberry texture, but I love the flavor in my recipes. I could use cranberry juice too I guess, but I am still unclear about how much to put in it.

Hi SissieSass, I'm not entirely sure about the dried cranberries substitution, but I'd try substituting the same amount of cranberry sauce. I hope that helps! - Natalie, Editor of AllFreeSlowCookerRecipes
