Cranberry Sauce

Ok, ok, I know Thanksgiving is still 3 days away, but the ladies in this household simply cannot hold back from cooking any longer!  Racking our brains for what can be made 3 days in advance we came up with cranberry sauce and the stuffing saute stuff (apples, celery, onions, pecans, craisins, mushrooms).

For the cranberry sauce I combined ingredients from a few recipes I looked at on the Food Network web site.

 I chose to use orange juice, lemon and orange zest, cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar.

The cranberries literally pop while they cook.  Look out, they might burn you!

This is the lovely mush it all turns into when it's finished.  Dammit it's just impossible to take food pictures at night. Ugh. Well, I promise you it tastes good annnnnd I hope you are excited to see what else I cook up this Thanksgiving!


  1. Have you tried using white wine in place of the orange juice, really really good.

  2. i've never tried that, sounds like a great idea. thanks!
