Here's Mom's recipe for cranberry sauce.

Cranberry Sauce

1 pkg. fresh cranberries
2 1/4 cups sugar
1 teaspoon almond extract
grated orange (1) and lemon(1) rind
1 cup water

Bring cranberries to boil in 1 cup water.When all have burst, remove from flame and put in a food mill to remove skins. Take remaining jelly and add sugar; bring to a boil again. Then add almond flavoring and rinds.Put in refrigerator to cool.

For a large crew, we routinely double the recipe.

Default Thanksgiving Recipes: Cranberry marmalade

I love cranberry on thanksgiving!

Love it so much that for years, I served it right out of the can. Three years ago, I picked up this simple cranberry marmalade recipe from Martha Stewart's Living magazine.

Cranberry Marmalade makes about 4 1/2 cups

5 juice oranges, chopped into 1/4 inch dice (including peel)
5 cups fresh cranberries
2 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup water

In a medium saucepan, bring all ingredients to a boil.

Reduce heat, simmer until mixture is the consistency of loose jam, about 35 minutes.

Transfer to serving bowl. Refrigerate if desired, can keep up to a week in the fridge.


I also love this on buttered biscuits, toasted muffinss.

Enjoy!

Here's a simple recipe for the perfect dessert when you already stuffed!

Strawberry Ices

3 cups fresh strawberries (frozen will do out of season)
3 teaspoons lemon juice
I cup orange juice
1 cup sugar

We use a metal oblong cake pan.

Blend 1/2 of berries and remaining ingredients in blender until smooth. Add remaining berries. Freeze about 2 hours. Break up in chunks, and beat in mixer until smooth. Refreeze. For larger portions, double the recipe.

There are never any leftovers!

Cheryl, that recipe sounds delicious. Mom and I were discussing adding it this year to the festivities. We always end up with 2 or 3 sweet potato dishes! mjd's marmalade also sounds great.Using oranges chopped whole is very intriguing.

Cool Re: Thanksgiving Recipes!!

Here is another 'Mom, Mom...are you making this?' recipe:


'Asian' Green Beans

1 lb fresh green beans, trimmed
1 tablespoon chopped scallions or onion
garlic to taste
ginger to taste
3 tablespoons oil
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/4 cup water

boil beans for 3 minutes. drain and plunge into cold water and drain again.
Saute scallions, garlic and ginger in hot oil for 1 minute. add sugar and soy sauce,
cooking until sugar dissolves. add beans and water, reduce heat and stir fry for 2 minutes


Thank you for all your 'raves' on the SoCo Sweet potatoes...feel free to modify it to your tastes!
I almost always sprinkle more brown sugar on the top.

Thank you for add'l recipes MJD & Howard!!
I will be trying them...I LOVE Cran & Strawberries!! ~Cheryl

We watched Packers beat the Lions LOL.
Cheryl, your sweet potato recipe was a hit here -thanks! I would use less honey & mor brown sugar next time (I love them w/ b sugar).
mjd if you're here, thanks for mentioning the brine. First time I did a brine - soaked for 6 hours in salt, fine chop or grated carrot, celery, rosemary, thyme & it was THE BEST turkey I ever made or even had. Thanks again for the idea.
