Time for cranberries.
For quite some time now I've been making a hot cranberry-apple salad for Thanksgiving dinner. It's a recipe I got from my Grandmother and it's awesome. One of the best things about it is that it also make a great dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. However, I'm not making it this year. Our Thanksgiving celebration coincides with a birthday and we're having cake so we don't really need another super-sweet thing like dessert.
I'm still going for something cranberry but I don't know what yet. A relish on the side or something. Something to mix in to give stuff that cranberry zing. I only have two days to figure it out. I'm leaning toward a cranberry-orange relish or spiced cranberries (clove, cinnamon, brown sugar sauce.) Maybe I'll make two. Just some things that will hang up on the side of the plate next to the turkey or dressing for you to dab in to when you want to mix it up a bit.
If you have any suggestions please post them in comments or drop me a line.
