It isn’t thanksgiving without a cranberry dish, and the vibrant cranberry red is a welcome addition to the earthy colors of the Thanksgiving turkey and traditional sides. Cranberries are tart, so tart as to be inedible without some sweetener. This Cranberry Sauce recipe, however, goes lighter on the sugar to highlight the cranberry and complement the other naturally sweet sides, such as sweet potatoes, butternut squash and cornbread. For an interesting little twist, I’ve added a couple of Clementines.
Rinse and pick through the cranberries for any bad ones.
Cut the cleaned Clementines in half and stir in.
Serve at room temperature.
A traditional recipe with a little twist. Sweet clementines with fresh cranberries make a delicious condiment, especially at Thanksgiving!
