The Spices and Seasons column is all about giving you seasonal options with a touch of spice. It is the spice that makes things come together and bind together the fabric of life.
Yes, of course we are not talking about that canned stuff. So, here are five ways to get those cranberries on your thanksgiving table, without a can opener.
- Cranberry Chutney with Apricots: This chutney is a dense almost jam like spicy concoction, that brings the flavors and colors of fall to your table.
- Cranberry and Clementine Chutney: This one is a light tasting saucy chutney that makes a great spooning sauce over turkey, and after the big day, it tastes perfect in sandwiches.
- Cranberry and Green Apple Relish: If you like the freshness of cranberries to dominate, here is a well seasoned relish, with fresh flavors of mint, green apples and cranberries. The marriage of ginger and mint make for a unique seasoning profile.
- Spagetti Squash with toasted Mustard Seeds and Cranberries: Now, cranberries can do more than just hang out as relishes, here is an interesting creation, my maiden affair with spaghetti squash.
- Cranberry Port Conserve: This one is my all time favorite, so much so, I adapted a variation in the Spices and Seasons cookbook.
Here is wishing everyone a beautiful and peaceful holiday.
