Cranberry Sauce

recipe thanksgiving cranberries explode
The track team is having a Thanksgiving dinner tonight, so I decided to make a dessert. Except they had cranberries at Grocery Outlet for really cheap, so I was like "Oh man I bet I can totally make awesome homemade cranberry sauce and it will be awesome so let's just ignore that I've never made it before".

So, I'm sort of basing this off of the recipe on the back of the cranberry package, and then another I found online. The final product was supposed to be made of:

-1 cup water
-12oz bag cranberries
-1 cup sugar

After reading comments from people who had made the online recipe, it became:

-1/2 cup water
-1/2 cup orange juice
-3/4ish cup of sugar
-12oz bag cranberries
-1 cup blueberries
-An unknown amount (possibly half a teaspoon?) of cinnamon

Boil liquid and sugar together, then add cranberries, continuing to boil and stir them until they burst. Reduce heat to simmer and stir in cinnamon and blueberries. Remove from stove, let cool until room temperature and chill it in fridge.

It is so delicious. It is kind of tart but still sweet, and it is this super pretty mix of reds and blues that smells super cinnamony.

The recipe line of "boil until cranberries burst" needs to be rewritten to "boil until the cranberries start exploding juice at you and you start to question whether it's really worth getting flying boiling liquid on your hands to make this food."

Anyways, does anyone have some favourite Thanksgiving/holiday foods they like to make or like to eat?

Is turkey too obvious? :P

My friends invite us to a turkey dinner, but on the days we are alone, my mom substitutes turkey with chicken (we have never prepared turkey before). There's one dish called chicken biryani that she makes, which is spicy, but oh so delicious.

I always look forward to the green bean casserole and chocolate pie, personally.

I made a rhubarb pie for my church homegroup's Thanksgiving, it was surprisingly delicious for a first pie.

I happen to enjoy getting a small sample of everything I can at any given Thanksgiving-related gluttony function and getting it all in one bite together and then eating it.

Each year it's either very delicious or horrifically revolting, and no matter the outcome, I always eat the rest of the meal separately like a sane and normal person would.

Like Bunda, I'm also a fan of the green bean casserole, which is simple to make and tastes delicious. We also make jello with fruit in it that's pretty good.

I now have a sudden urge to try turkey deep-fried in cranberry sauce. O_o
