If it's the jellied cranberry sauce - always chilled as cold as I can get it. If it's the chunks-o-fruit type being served like a compote either chilled or room temp. The only time I ever heat it is if I'm going to use it as a hot sauce to serve over a meat.

Who serves canned cranberries? I'm the guy that made the green bean caserrole from scratch, remember?

I buy fresh cranberries and make my own cranberry/orange relish from a recipe I've had for years.

Do you serve it cold, warm or at room temperature?

Lots of people - it goes back to "tradition" sometimes.

I've never heated the canned cranberries - always preferred them cold. I also make my own cranberry/orange relish and serve that cold as well. The only relish I ever served warm was a port wine/shallot/cranberry concoction.

I have no problem with canned cranberries sometimes you just cant find fresh there are people I know who will only eat the jellied kind and wont touch fresh.When I make fresh I use orange juice instead of water.When I do Thanksgiving in Texas we have fresh and the 2 canned types that way everybody is happy.
Almost forgot I like all 3 versions cold.

I make my relish in the Cuisinart with oranges, then it's served cold, or by the time everyone is finished at the table, it's room temp.....good both ways!!!

I serve canned cranberries all year long. While I make my own at Thanksgiving, I still like to have canned (Ocean Spray, thank you,) cranberries whenever I want them. I love them. I serve them at room temperature. They seem to have more flavor that way.
