Ginger Cranberry Sauce; Update – Season’s Eatings

To everyone participating in this year's Season's Eatings gift exchange:Logo500done

The emails have all been sent; you should have your name and all the details    ;-)).

If you don't, please let me know ASAP!

Let the fun begin!

My Christmas fun has started….

I found cranberries!

Not in my local market, of course, but in a large hypermarket in Bordeaux.

Which means I may not get back there any time soon.

Which means I bought all I could carry.

Strange how something that is so common in the US is such a rarity here, at least for me.

Really strange is that they weren't Ocean Spray cranberries; they're Habelman Bros. from good old Wisconsin.

Now I can make my favorite Ginger Cranberry Sauce.

Ginger Cranberry Sauce

Ginger Cranberry Sauce

3/4 cup apple juice
2/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 tbs minced fresh ginger, more or less
2 cups whole cranberries

Heat juice, sugar and half of the ginger until sugar is dissolved. Add the whole cranberries and cook, simmering, just until most of them 'pop'. Remove and, with a potato masher, mash 2 or 3 times, no more. Add the rest of the ginger, stir well and cool.

This will get very thick when cool and will keep for several weeks in the fridge.

In addition to this, for the weekly menu for November 20 we have a Traditional American Thanksgiving Dinner, Shrimp and Feta Pasta, Creamy Veal and Leek Risotto, Pumpkin Soup, Braised Pork…

  1. Cindy, this is only the second time in 15 years I’ve found them…. although other expats have had better luck. It must have something to do with living in the middle of nowhere.
    Val, the Brit’s keep saying they have them but what they refer to as cranberries look more like small currents to me….
