Whether you call it cranberry sauce or cranberry relish, no Thanksgiving table is complete without it. Many people feel overwhelmed by preparing such an important meal, and choose to focus on an elaborate Tofurky
(or another vegetarian Thanksgiving entree
), and choose to just grab a can opener and call it quits when it comes to the cranberries.
Don't do that. Make it fresh - you won't regret it! This Thanksgiving, grab a bag of fresh or frozen cranberries and try out one of these easy recipes:
Sugar-free cranberry sauce Try homemade cranberries without the sugar. Instead, fruit and fruit juice is used to cut the tartness of the cranberries in this recipe.
Apple and cranberry sauce Fresh apples sweeten this easy homemade cranberry recipe, made with either fresh or frozen cranberries.
Cranberry sauce with blueberries For a more wintery feel, or if you've got wild blueberries growing in your backyard (and lucky you if you do!), try adding blueberries to your cranberries for a lovely purplish side dish.
Five-star cranberries with cabernet For the vegan gourmet. You don't have to use a Cabernet - just about decent red wine will suffice.
