PhilanthRecipe Redux: A Thanksgiving Side Dish Swap

cranberrysaucespoon blog post 11.25.13

I’m reviving PhilanthRecipe from 2011. Share a Thanksgiving side dish recipe!

Fourth quarter is busy and stressful. This is light and fun.

Got a Charity Cheese Sauce? Annual Fund Fritter? Or Nonprofit Nut Bread? Share it!

I’ll get us started with Amy Drum’s (my wife) recipe:

Compliance Cranberry Sauce
2 cups of water
1 3/4 to 2 cups of sugar
1 16 oz bag of cranberries

Combine sugar & water in a large saucepan and bring water to boil, stirring to dissolve sugar; boil rapidly for 5 minutes. Add cranberries. Cook, uncovered, over high heat 5 – 6 minutes until skins pop. Remove from heat and chill. If you want thicker sauce in order to mold, cook 10-12 minutes. To add a bit of flavor, you can add cinnamon sticks or orange zest and some orange juice.

Post the recipe to your favorite side dish in the comments, or share a link to one of your favorites.
