In 11 days, my mom, dad and sweet 8 year old niece will be one a plane from NY to Texas.
We’ll be eating lots of Mexican food because you can’t get good Mexican food up there.
And we’ll be cooking up a storm for Thanksgiving.
Homemade apple pie is my dad’s speciality and he makes it with his granddaughters. My Sweet P can’t stop talking about making apple pie with Gampers.
And sharing our recipe for fresh, homemade cranberry sauce. Please…I beg you…don’t buy the canned stuff. It’s just not good and not good for you.
10 minutes and you’ll be so thankful you did…and your Turkey Day guests will love you for it.
Fresh Cranberry Sauce
1 cup orange juice (or water)
1 cup sugar
1 bag fresh cranberries
Bring orange juice and sugar to a boil.
Add cranberries and return to a boil.
Cranberries will begin popping…and melting with the bubbly orange juice and sugar.
Reduce heat and let it ‘simmer down’….for about 10 minutes…
Chill overnight…and enjoy the sweet cranberries with the tangy orange juice on Thanksgiving Day!
I like to broccoli casserole smothered in fresh cranberry sauce. I know, I’m strange…and my daughter does it too.
That’s what the holidays are for!
