  Cranberry Sauce!
Cranberry sauce is a sauce or relish made out of cranberries
"commonly associated with Thanksgiving dinner in North America. There are differences in flavor depending on the geography of where the sauce is made: in Europe it is generally slightly sour-tasting, while in North America it is sweetened. Cranberry sauce is usually used on top of stuffing on Thanksgiving."

The most basic cranberry sauce consists of cranberries boiled in sugar water until the berries pop and the mixture thickens. Some recipes include other ingredients such as slivered almonds, orange juice, zest, ginger, maple syrup, or cinnamon.

Commercial Cranberry Sauce: Commercial cranberry sauce may be
loose and uncondensed, or condensed or jellied and thus shaped like its
can. The jellied form is slipped out of the can onto a dish, and is served
sliced or intact for slicing at the table.

Some commercial brands of cranberry sauce may not be appropriate for
vegetarians as they may contain gelatin.

Cranberry sauce is often eaten in conjunction with turkey for Christmas
or Thanksgiving in the United States and Canada, and it is only rarely
eaten or served in other contexts. Despite being called a sauce, cranberry
sauce is most often consumed as a food itself, not as a garnish for other food items.
Cranberry Sauce Recipe
1 cup (200 g) sugar
  1 cup (250 mL) water
  4 cups (1 12-oz package) fresh or frozen cranberries
  Optional Pecans, orange peel, raisins, currants,
  blueberries, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice.

1) Wash cranberries. In a saucepan bring to a boil
water and sugar, stirring to dissolve sugar. Add
cranberries, return to a boil. Reduce heat, simmer for
10 minutes or until cranberries burst.

2) Here is where you can add 1/2 cup other ingredients,
like pecans & orange peal. You can add up to a pint of
fresh or frozen blueberries for added sweetness. Spices
such as cinnamon, nutmeg or allspice can be added too.

3) Remove from heat. Cool completely at room temp
and chill in refrigerator. Cranberry sauce will thicken as
it cools. Cranberry sauce makes 2 1/4 cups.


(soaked for an hour in vodka beforehand) or fresh cranberries. It's a wonderful compliment to a Thanksgiving meal.

Cranberry sauce is regarded an indispensable part of traditional American and Canadian Thanksgiving menus and European winter festivals.

Did you know? At the end of the song Strawberry Fields Forever, singer John Lennon can be heard repeating a phrase which, to many listeners, sounds like "I buried Paul". In fact, close listening of studio tapes (for instance those released in Anthology 2) reveals he actually says "cranberry sauce". Lennon confirmed this in a 1980 interview, stating it was a kind of "icing on the cake" of the weirdness of the song, where anything he might have imagined saying would have been appropriate, and had no special meaning. This song was giving the name to the band "The Cranberries", at first also called "The Cranberry-Saw-Us", which is a wordplay for cranberry sauce.

Comedian Neil Hamburger, performing to hostile crowds on Tenacious D's 2006 world tour, would not leave the stage of large venues such as Madison Square Garden until he had gotten the entire audience to chant the phrase
"cranberry sauce" several times.
