Do you have a recipe for Thanksgiving that you love? Here's one for you.

 

Thanksgiving is filled with delicious traditions and holiday recipes that are passed down from generation to generation.

I’m sure on your table every year there is a mixture of both old and new recipes that you love.

I like to tweak the classics to give them a modern zing, as well as boost up their “health” factor.

A great example is the classic cranberry sauce. It simply wouldn’t be considered a Thanksgiving dinner without those tart little bog berries.

But for me, the greatest insult to the life of that turkey sitting on your table is to pair it with a big blob of overly sweetened canned cranberry goop.

Yuck! Spit, spit patooey!

So… let’s honor this traditional meal and make a delicious cranberry sauce from scratch. Don’t worry! It’s actually really easy.

Cranberry sauce is literally, only a few ingredients:

  • Cranberries
  • Sugar
  • Spices

Once you make your own, you will never go back to canned cranberry goop ever again.

I like to reduce the amount of sugar in cranberry sauce by cooking them in apple juice/cider instead of water.

Plus, I mull that cider with cloves, cinnamon, ginger, and allspice to boost up both the health and the deliciousness factor.

It’s totally yummy and because of those spices, it can keep colds and flu away! It’s a win-win for everyone that sits down to your Thanksgiving meal.

Be sure to make extra Cranberry Sauce to use as jam on the turkey sandwiches on the few days following the feast. Everyone will surely appreciate it!
