In lieu of Friday Flowers this week, I thought you all might like this recipe for Cranberry Sauce.. I’ve blogged about it before, but it is just THAT GOOD that you must see it again! And to all my new subscribers, or those passing through here, this is the BEST I have ever made. So take a look:
I  L- O- V- E  cranberry sauce.
But it must have the whole cranberries in it… none of the jellied stuff for me.
 I found this recipe on several years ago. This cranberry sauce is crunchy, tart, freezes well, and is always a huge hit at the table. It’s easy to make….once you find some cherry or black cherry cider. I did try the cranberry juice cocktail once but found it was too sweet and just didn’t have enough taste. The cherry cider, or juice, is perfect. Dried cherries are available in most specialty stores; they cost more than dried cranberries, but go for it as they make a huge difference.
First, to find the cranberries.
Fresh Market has them floating in a “bog”! What a great idea. So, I scooped up about a pound and took them home.
If you can’t find cranberries from a “bog”, then your ingredients will look like this:
To make it simple and easy for you I’ve copied the recipe here:

Believe me, this is as good as it gets! Let me know if you try and how you like it.

  4. looks delicious. Reminds me that I must start preparing. I like to get ahead and put things in the freezer so that I don’t get panicky at the last moment,
