Long Island Thanksgiving Pt01 – Cranberry Sauce

A friend of mine from way-back-when school had mentioned the thanksgiving holiday (the superbowl of holidays IMHO) in response to one of my recipes. So, I figured that I would write down a couple of other recipes for a nice Long Island inspired thanksgiving… I’m going to start with the cranberry sauce.

  • 2 bags of cranberries
  • 2 cups Jamesport Vineyards Late Harvest Riesling
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups water
  • Orange zest

Combine the cranberries, wine, sugar, and water in a saucepot and cook over a low heat. Stir to prevent burnt bottom syndrome… as the berries start popping, thickening the sauce,  zest an orange over the post to add a nice citrus tone to the sauce.

This has to be the easiest side for thanksgiving apart from nuking frozen veggies! Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

So, share some of YOUR favorite thanksgiving recipes and help fight the ‘rush to Christmas’ we all seem to be putting up with… PUT THANKSGIVING BACK on the post-Halloween calendar!
