DO AHEAD Thanksgiving recipes! Then it will be fun and enjoyable even for the cook. Get ready! Over the next 2 weeks, I am going to post the recipes that I taught repeatedly in my Southern Thanksgiving classes. Below is a photo of part of the spread at my daughter’s home for Thanksgiving 2016. I will take you through it all, step by step. Pictured (Clockwise): Roasted Turkey, Cranberry Conserve, Cornbread Sausage Dressing, Sweet Potato Apple Casserole, Oven Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Bacon, Scalloped Oysters, Mashed Potatoes, Gravy
First up is the Cranberry Conserve. Tomorrow, the Cornbread Sausage Dressing
By all means make the cranberry conserve as soon as you see fresh cranberries in the stores. This is a HUGE hit every year. Deep ruby red, becoming a deeper red as it cools…… it is luscious!
