Cranberry sauce can be basic and boring, or simple and sensational. I prefer the latter and prove it in today’s recipe. I’m sure you see the bags of cranberries that make their way into grocery stores in mid-November, but I’m not sure if you know what to do with them. While there are several ways to cook them up, I prefer simply with ginger, orange juice, honey, and fresh thyme. While we typically only eat the stuff at the holidays, it pairs perfectly with meat any time of year.
I’ve got two turkeys in brine as I type this, so stay tuned if you want to see how I gussy them up!
I recommend planning out your Thanksgiving dinner this week. Have the menu written by Friday and the grocery list prepared by Sunday. Start shopping Monday and prepping Tuesday and Wednesday. This will make next Thursday feel like a cake walk. Thanksgiving is a job you’ve got to push in the beginning if you wish to minimize the stress that often accompanies it.
