Traditional Cranberry Sauce
Does your Thanksgiving Dinner generally include a can of cranberries shimmied and shaken out of a can? If so, we can do better and it’s easy! Cranberries are a super food packed full of too many health benefits to name and so easy to prepare even a first time Thanksgiving Hostess can make a fabulous cranberry dish and impress everyone. Plus, fresh is always better so why not give it a try. 
Bring to Boil
The taste is amazingly tart and sweet and pairs so perfectly with the turkey. Make an amazing leftover turkey sandwich with the cranberry sauce and give it a little kick. And if it’s not Thanksgiving, try pairing the cranberry sauce with a roasted chicken, pan fried pork chops or experiment and see what you like! Just like wine, if you like it that’s all that matters. Tipsy Sonja is always on a quest to find new uncommon pairings, new recipes and new ways of preparing food. Make the unexpected delicious!
