Christmas Dinner Wouldn't Be Complete With Out Cranberries!!

Cape Cod Select and Edgewood Bogs (the sole supplier for Cape Cod Select) are owned & operated by the Rhodes Family.  Edgewood Bogs LLC is a 4th generation independent cranberry grower with over 800 acres of producing bog and associated support land in Southeastern Massachusetts, the heart of "Cranberry Country", and the same place cranberry farming began in the early 1800’s.

In case you didn't know, I am from Massachusetts.  We are known for a couple of things; Boston, fish, maple products, tea and of course cranberries!!  

Some of Ben's family lives near Carver, and when ever we go out to visit them, we are always amazed at all of the cranberry bogs.  

With Christmas literally days away, we have already started to prepare for our dinner.  This is my favorite time of year because I get to eat, eat and eat!!  We are having braised beef, turnips, green bean casserole, new potatoes, and of course Cranberry Sauce!!!  Last year, Ben and I made our first ever homemade cranberry sauce, and it was delicious!!  We did it again this year.

I used a very simple recipe.  It called for cranberries, orange juice and sugar.

12 ounces cranberries 
1 cup white sugar 
1 cup orange juice 

In a medium sized saucepan over medium heat, dissolve the sugar in the orange juice. Stir in the cranberries and cook until the cranberries start to pop (about 10 minutes). Remove from heat and place sauce in a bowl. Cranberry sauce will thicken as it cools.

I found that I had to cook it about 30 minutes to get it to be less chunky.  My Husband prefers smooth.  I also blended the mix in our Vitamix to remove the last remaining lumps.  

Besides Cranberry Sauce, The Cranberry Marketing Committee’s Guide to Entertaining with Fresh Cranberries provides hosts and party-goers with innovative recipes and ideas for decorating with fresh cranberries. With so many forms of cranberries – fresh, frozen, dried, juice or sauce – the options are endless!

Take a look at the guide and see for yourself all the terrific recipes you can make for your Christmas and New Year's dinners!!
