cranberriesBritish journalist Alistair Cooke called cranberry sauce an “unchallengeable American doctrine” of Thanksgiving dinner. Sauce can be prepared in many ways: with orange zest, ginger, cabernet, or sour cream. Each family’s favorite is a pixel in the portrait of our melting pot.

Preparation Tips

To make cranberry sauce cook cranberries in 4:1 water to berries, adding 1/2-1 cup sugar (depending on taste). Cook till soft and mash. Can also be used raw in a relish, by processing with oranges, little sugar, spices and nuts.

Storage Tips

Fresh cranberries are very hearty, store in a sealed plastic bag for up to two months in the fridge. Be sure to discard any bruised or shriveled berries first.
