Happy Thanksgiving

I think this year I seriously hit it with the sauce. We celebrated yesterday (today is for cleaning. What a downer.) and this disappeared fast.

Home- made Cranberry Sauce.


454g fresh, whole cranberries. (That's maybe....3 or 4 cups? I don't think it's a precision thing. Two small packages or one big one.)
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup orange juice
1 tsp orange rind.

Bring to a boil and cook (somewhat attentively) until the berries are mushy and have gone to bits. (About 10 minutes) The whole thing turns a bit pink and foamy at this point, but have faith. Turned out and cooled, it looks like this.



(PS. The most Canadian song? It was Hockey Night in Canada, and my winner (chosen at random from among the correct answers) was Anne-Marie in Seattle. That qualified for double points, so I chose another at random and came up with Claire. I'll be mailing them both off some sock yarn. )
