Can I make cranberry sauce from dried cranberries?

seconds | Nov 16, 200907:39 AM     22

I live overseas and we can't get fresh or canned cranberries here - but we can get Craisins. For Thanksgiving I thought maybe I could make a cranberry sauce out of them but I read somewhere that it won't work because of the lack of pectin in dried fruit to make the sauce gel. Has anyone made cranberry sauce out of Craisins before? Or have other ideas for Thanksgiving side dishes that I could make with Craisins?
