Food: Cranberry Sauce

November 22, 2011

I don’t like canned cranberry sauce. Which is why, when presented with my most reviled type – jellied – I do my best to make a mockery of it (see above, Mom doesn’t like my mockery).

But as Thanksgiving grows near, I feel I should at least make a mention of the stuff. Native Americans apparently liked cranberries fresh or dried, which is how they eventually came to be eaten with the Pilgrims that first feasting year. Though somehow I doubt they were served from a can and sliced into little round discs.

I do like cranberry relish, or cranberry orange relish. And you can make your own cranberry sauce quite easily with a package of cranberries, sugar, and some orange juice.

Ok, there is something fantastically nostalgic about good old Ocean Spray. So you know what? Go ahead, cut me off a slice.
