Easy holiday edible…

December 30, 2012 § 7 Comments


Short prep time, long enjoyment time…take a bag o’ organic cranberries from Whole Foods, stir into 4 Cs boiling water to which  1/2 C sugar has been added and reduce after a minute’s boil to cook for  8-10 minutes… or just follow your intuition. While northeast coasters may be more savvy about cranberry sauce, all will enjoy the value, compliment and use thereof regarding the charismatic cranberry.



They’re great spooned alongside holiday roasts, they’re pretty on the table and the cran sauce also makes an excellent sandwich condiment!

 Note: The uncooked crans look great on a tray surrounding any larger food presentation (sorry, no picture – just trust me…we spread them around on the white turkey platter…looks yum….)

    One good recipe deserves another! No cooking required here!

    Process in a food processor or blender 1 bag cranberries and 1 large orange (unpeeled). Stir in 1/2 cup toasted and chopped pecans and 1/3 c. honey. Let sit for at least four hours.

    It keeps well for several days. I like to swirl it through cranberry bread or muffins, or even combine it with cottage cheese for a healthy snack or lunch. It’s what converted me to cranberries!

    Happy New Year!

      Went to see the Hobbit last night. (Must confess I loved it…)Aiming for Karenina this week since i now have several hours (unless I guilt myself into housework) to finish the novel – yay!!!!!!!!!

    I’ve never thought of adding cranberries (especially your delicious-sounding recipe) as a condiment. I’m going to have to try it on a sandwich. BTW, is that lovely black and white covered bowl and saucer from MacKenzie-Childs? I work near the store on 57th. I love that B/W motif.

  • Looks yum to me! I sometimes add orange bits, but they don’t need it! Plus, it always smells good cooking!

  • Nice! That sounds a lot better for you than the cranberry sause I made lol! I threw in 1 cup of orange juice and 1 cup of sugar, heated it until it was all stirred together than added the cranberries and boiled for 10 minutes. You’re looks just as good and has way less sugar hahaha!
