A quick post for Cranberry Sauce to go with the turkey recipe I just put up at Dewena's Window...
I always hunt for cranberries from Wisconsin. These are from Tomah, Wisconsin, Habelman Brothers brand, bought at our local Publix. They were beautifully perfect!
I have tried many recipes but always go back to this old one. Yes, it takes a lot of sugar to jell properly but then you only eat dabs of cranberry sauce, not gobs.
2 bags fresh cranberries, washed and any stems removed
Mix in pot: 3 cups sugar, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves, pinch of ginger.
Stir in 2 cups cold water. Bring to boil.
Add cranberries and cook 5 minutes only.
Reduce heat and simmer one hour, stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat. Cool. Chill until serving time.
Do Not pour into Grandmother's crystal bowl while hot!
Yum! Made mine yesterday. RH and his brother had to sample it warm from the pot with ham sandwiches for their lunch. We also like a dollop of it on pancakes or even on an omelette.
A blessed and safe Thanksgiving Day to those of you celebrating it.
