We've hosted a few times, ourselves, and are still working on developing food traditions. We always make a TON of turkey stock the day after Thanksgiving/Christmas (we usually travel for one and stay home for the other), and otherwise there's a lot of experimenting.

This is my favorite cranberry-sauce-like dish, it's tangy and sweet but not dessertlike... I like it served chilled but my husband's aunt serves it warm and it ain't half bad that way, too...

4 c. fresh cranberries
1 1/2 - 2 c. sugar (depending on taste)
1 c. chopped dried apricots (1 6-oz. package)
1 c. golden raisins
1 c. water
1 c. orange juice
1 TBSP. grated orange peel (from 1 large orange)

Combine all, cook over low heat until berries pop. Stir frequently. Keep chilled - can be made up to 4 days ahead.


P.S. What's the mushroom stuffing recipe? I'm intrigued...


I'll get the recipe and post it - it's really yummy! Thanks for the cranberry recipe!

We do host the meal here in the Trenches. My parents, Hubby's parents, my Bro and my Nephew will join us this year. My Hubby is a whiz in the kitchen so he's in charge of all the fixins. My contribution? The gourmet green bean casserole with Durkee french onions on top. Oh, and the wine, of course.
