…from the Perspectives’ Holiday Kitchen
How you doin’? In my house at holiday time my mother always forgot the cranberry sauce, lost in the back of the refrigerator. But one thing was certain, mom never forgot to serve the dessert. So, we created a cranberry dish that would never be forgotten.
Cranberries are a group of evergreen dwarf shrubs or trailing vines cultivated in central and northern Europe and in northern United States, Canada and Chile. They are found in acidic bogs throughout the cooler regions of the Northern Hemisphere. Actually, the United States, Canada and Chile accounted for 97% of the world production of cranberries. Most cranberries are processed into products such as juice, sauce, jam and sweetened dried cranberries, with the remainder sold fresh to consumers.
As we know, cranberry sauce is a traditional accompaniment to turkey at Christmas and Thanksgiving dinners in the United States (when not forgotten). I developed this recipe a couple of years ago and get rave reviews from everyone each time I prepare it. It is not only delicious, but very pretty for a holiday table.
