I like the lumpy, preferably home made. I guess, for me, it's better to chew, rather than slurp. The kids liked the jelly, which is also fun to eat and play with, so we usually had both.

A Lot More Than a Sauce or Jelly

Cranberries are so good for you - loaded with antioxidants.

This is a great Christmas gift to make - cranberry/pistachio white-chocolate bark.


The Fraser Valley has many cranberry farms.

Oh, FAN, you really should write a book, complete with lots of beautiful, illustrative photos.

I'd love the recipe for that cranberry-pistachio chocolate.

Hi Maggie! Thanks so much. A book about special events on a budget is on my bucket list. I have already started compiling it. Catering will be part of it. (I will send you a PM with my fb link).

The bark is easy to make. I melt some Belgian white chocolate in a double boiler, add dried cranberries, pistachios (or almonds), then spread on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Break into pieces when cool.

It is a nice present to make for friends and family. Despite the madness of Black Friday, I think home-made goodies mean more.

Yum! Thank you!

We are doing holiday nibbles for a post-Christmas wedding shower. These will be beautiful and perfect!

I agree about homemade goodies, which my extended family exchanges every year in lieu of boughten gifts.

We refuse at our house to participate in the Black Friday frenzies----unless it is a bit of online shopping.

A Christmas wedding-shower is fantastic.

You could have the guests sign an ornament (use metallic pen), or a tree skirt (with fabric pen) or a Christmas serving plate/tray (with china pen). The couple would then have a forever keepsake to use every Christmas.


Just a few ideas.....

....and sorry to hijack thread. I can't help myself.

Neat thread. Recipes, Great Pics, etc. I vote for the real cranberries in a bag. Follow the directions for stove cooking. They pop and then they are ready. Fresh and dee-licious.

Another way to enjoy cranberries

Cranberry Liqueur. (In the making)

4 cups chopped, fresh cranberries
3 cups sugar
2 cups gin
Zest of one lemon

Mix in gallon jar, seal and let stand 2 weeks. Strain and pour into clean bottles. Serve in ginger ale or seven-up, maybe champagne?

Have never made this before, if nothing else I am going to enjoy looking at it sitting on the counter for the next couple of weeks.
