Homemade Cranberry Sauce


Every Turkey needs to be accompanied by a great cranberry sauce, not the kind that pops out of the can still retaining the shape of the can, no way!   We want the kind that is made from fresh cranberries, with a touch of orange and nutmeg!   It's easy and so worth the time!


Homemade Cranberry Sauce
Ingredients
  • 1 12 oz. package of fresh cranberries
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • zest of one orange
  • juice of 1/2 an orange
  • 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
Instructions
1. Place a package of fresh cranberries in a saucepan
2. Add 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar
3. Add the zest of 1 orange, juice of 1/2 an orange and 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
4. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until the berries break down and burst, about 10-12 minutes. Finish by crushing any whole berries with a fork.

My Favorite Thanksgiving Dishes

Thanksgiving is my hands down favorite holiday!  Somehow, the idea of entire families  sitting down together to eat a great meal and give thanks, just makes me tear up.  And I do tear up, I don't remember a year that I haven't cried tears of thankfulness and joy as my sweet hubby says the blessing over our Thanksgiving meal. 

I would like to share some of our favorite Thanksgiving dishes starting with the all out star of the show:
 The Turkey!

This Turkey is cooked breast side down allow those juices to settle in the breast for a perfect moist Turkey.


Next up 




























So Thankful and Blessed
