cooking up a batch of cranberry sauce
Happy Thanksgiving !
this is how i make cranberry sauce. it is good any time of year if you find a bag of frozen berries in your fridge. and you can change the flavors depending what is on hand.
water to cover and sugar to taste, or follow the instruction on the back of the bag. i add grated ginger, honey or maple syrup, lemon zest, cinnamon, chopped apple or pear ,chopped up orange in small chunks that include flesh and skin, halfed grapes, shopped up dried fruit bts, and a splash of Merlot.
cook until the berries start to pop. cool .add nuts if you like a crunch and texture. this is an adult sauce and my nieces preferred the canned sauce when they were young.
Happy Thanksgiving to all !
