a lot of g says, t says

cm gives up the family cranberries

with one comment

t says:  I made cm an offer he couldn’t refuse.  Here is his family’s cranberry sauce recipe from our recent Thanksgiving get-together.  But now we owe him g’s mom’s lasagna recipe …

Separately, rumor has it that a is a cranberry sauce connooissieur with a secret recipe of his own … guess I’ll have to evaluate it at our upcoming holiday party?  It’s on like Donkey Kong.

__ 12 oz bag of cranberries
__ 1/3 c H20 (we had apple cider so used instead and used less sugar)
__ 2/3 c sugar (most recipes will call for 1-2 cups)
__ zest and juice of one orange
__ 2 cinnamon sticks
__ splash of orange liqueur


0)  Combine berries, water, sugar in a pot and bring to a boil.

1)  Add zest/juice/cinnamon and simmer until all cranberries have popped.  You can simmer as long as you want – the longer you boil the thicker it will get.

2)  Splash the liqueur in a few minutes before it is done.

cm says:  Also sometimes i throw in random other stuff like vanilla to mellow it out a bit (or the apple cider as noted above).
