We're Crazy For Cranberry!

I love seeing the cranberries come into the stores this time of year.  Cranberry sauce is super easy to make, and tastes much better made from scratch than the canned version.  You'll find too, that cranberries aren't just for cranberry sauce anymore!

Here are some of my favorite cranberry dishes:

Pastry Cornucopia with Cranberry Mousse: These pastry cornucopias were really pretty easy to make, and filled with {yummy} cranberry mousse made a perfect alternative to pumpkin pie.

Kicked Up Cranberry Jam:  Cranberry sauce, with jalapenos, for your toast.

Cranberry Apple Pumpkin Bundt Cake:  One of my favorite cakes -all the flavors of fall.  In a cake.  Does it get better?

Cranberry Sauce:  Traditional cranberry sauce is easy to make.  And easy to can for later!

Pork Loin with Cranberry Balsamic Vinegar Sauce:  Cranberry and balsamic vinegar taste great together - and are a great flavor companion for pork.

Cranberry Couscous:  Creamy and tart.  Pretty too.  Wouldn't it look good next to your turkey?

Chocolate Cranberry Cupcakes:  Chocolate and cranberries are another great match.

Mulled Cranberry Apple Cider:  This warm, comforting drink is easy to prepare and is a great finale for a holiday meal.

Which of these tickle your fancy?

  1. Thank you for posting this! I just picked up a few bags of cranberries on sale the other day, but had no idea where to start! Now there are plenty of options :-)

  2. Susan, these all sound great. I'm ready for T-Day food. We're featuring Thanksgiving at Saturday Dishes. I'd love it if you linked this.
