for those of you looking for something other than the jellied canned cranberry sauce~ (my hubby is particularly fond of the canned stuff, he claims it is the rings imprinted in the jelly that makes it so good.)
an old colleague of mine long ago shared this recipe with me.
i have made it almost every year since. it is hearty and flavorful and is quite amazing spread all over a slice of whole wheat bread with turkey leftovers piled on top.
give it a whirl, you too might make it a tradition.
