Cranberry Sauce!

It’s one of those either you love it or you hate it kind of foods. BUT either way, it’s proper place is on the Holiday dinner table … even if is just for looks.

Personally I LOVE it! It’s probably one of the easiest recipes to prepare for the holidays and adds a whole world of complimentary flavors to your meats. OH and it pairs so beautifully with Brie! YUM!

I do enjoy that tart sweet taste and have been known to have it on hand during the colder weather … it’s gorgeous used for the Cranberry Cream Cheese Pastries and I also enjoy adding it to my toasted chicken, turkey, pork or brie sandwiches. YUM!

One thing that I do once I see the fresh cranberries hit the shelves, is to buy several bags at a time and then freeze them. They keep really well in the freezer and then I’m sure to have them on hand if I ever want to make a batch of Cranberry muffins or cookies.

For this recipe, I have simply pimped up the basic recipe that you find on the back of the bag … think the warmth cinnamon and a hint of orange. It is lovely indeed!

Cranberry Sauce

I do hope and pray that you all have a safe and wonderful Holiday Season! If you are travelling, take your time and be safe. If you are hosting a Christmas spread … stay sane (lol – advice to myself) and enjoy!

Be Blessed and Merry Christmas!
