We are gearing up for the Thanksgiving weekend in the US, I'll be sharing the meal with my family and some dear friends. Dinner is at my place and I am SO looking forward to the next few days of cooking and organizing. I've been thinking a bit about traditions, food traditions in particular as I plan our menu. We all have foods that epitomize certain holidays, and to thank you for a wonderful year of listening to me rant about my knitting I want to share one of my fav Thanksgiving condiments with you:
1 lb. cranberries (I use organic when I can find them)
1 small orange ¼’d with peel on
1-1 ½ cups sugar
3 T bourbon or grand marnier
Wash produce. Put in Cuisinart and pulse. You can do it in two batches if needs be.
Yes, it's that easy and SOOOO good! My girl still hasn't developed a taste for it, and I just say "YUM, more for me!" Some years we have eaten it with a vegetarian entree, some years with fish, this year with a turkey that I luckily am not having to cook. (Insert happy sounds here)
Feeling thank-full for it all!
