A simple recipe for Spiced Cranberry Sauce with Apple & Orange that is complex in flavor and a Thanksgiving menu staple.
It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving will be here in a little over a week! I think I’m stuck in Summer Time Zone. Don’t get me wrong, I am absolutely looking forward to having my Dad and wonderful friends over for an all day feast and to the day after Thanksgiving when the only thing that will do are my biggest and baggiest sweat pants and a turkey sandwich. You know what I’m talking about, right? Anyway, I am starting my feast a little early in hopes of sharing some ideas with you as to what you could put on your Thanksgiving Table.
Today we’re starting with Cranberry Sauce. I’m not talking the kind with the permanent rings on the side of the log. Or the fancy shmancy molded kind like the Turkey Shaped Cranberry Sauce in this months issue of Martha Stewart Living magazine! (sorry Martha)
No, what I’m talking about is easy to make in 20 minutes, will store for a few days in the fridge so you don’t have to make it the day of. Tastes fantastic and is not too sweet and not too sour and will make a great accompaniment to your roast Beast! And don’t forget as a good shmear for your day after sweat pant wearing turkey sandwich eating day.
