Thanksgiving is Coming

The “Thanksgiving” season is upon us.  We are all starting to plan our big meal for that day. 

Most people will serve turkey as it’s the Thanksgiving entrée of choice.

But while many will serve similar meals, most have their own twists on how they do it.  Many have recipes handed down for generations for some special dish to serve everyone.

Today, I have two recipes for a side dish that is as tied to Thanksgiving as turkey.

It’s “Cranberry Sauce” and as I said it goes hand in hand with turkey.

I just received some fresh cranberries that were handpicked from a bog in Wisconsin.  I can’t wait to use them.

If you have never tried cranberry sauce, you owe it to yourself to give it a try.  Especially fresh cranberry sauce.  The canned version is and alright substitute if fresh are not available, you really want the fresh ones.

Cranberry sauce is great with all the other leftovers of the holiday feast too.  Try a turkey sandwich with the cranberry sauce and leftover stuffing.  There’s a recipe for this under the “Sandwich” recipe tab above.

So Wednesday’s recipe is for “Basic Cranberry Sauce” to get you started.  Then on Thursday, we have a jazzed up one called “Cranberry Sauce with Orange Liqueur.”  Now the best orange liqueur to use would be “Grand Marnier” but there are other less expensive ones too.

So enjoy giving one of these recipes a try this year at your “Thanksgiving Feast” and “Happy Cooking” until next week.
