If you’re freaked out on making foods for thanksgiving Thursday, offer to bring the sauce, not sodas. Easily, the easiest foodstuff to make. Water, sugar, bag of berries and tada! Tweak it as you wish, liqueur, cinnamon, nutmeg, orange juice, zest, nuts, etc.
1 c water
1 c sugar
12 oz cranberries
Bring sugar & water to a boil. Add cranberries (frozen or not but don’t thaw frozen berries) bring back to a boil. Lower to simmer and cover. Cook 10 minutes until berries pop. Cool & store up to a week.
Feel free to mix it up with the aforementioned add-ins. Have a happy Thanksgiving too!
A recipe I tried this weekend from BHG (better homes & gardens) that was delicious & has room for variability.
Yes, I know it’s not considered Cranberry season, but if you look around Cranberries are on sale and still looking good. So buy a few bags and stick one in the freezer, they’re very freezer friendly and hold up well when defrosted later. If you have a big shindig or you just really like real cranberry relish, look here for a quick recipe (and easy).
- 1 c sugar
- pinch salt
- ¼ c orange juice
Bring to a boil, stirring until dissolved. Reduce heat to med, add 12 oz bag cranberries, and watch them pop (releasing pectin) and thickening in 5 minutes. For firmer sauce, simmer another 5 minutes.
