The bright burgundy hue. The gelatinous cylindrical form. The sexy little can indents.
You know what Thanksgiving treat I speak of… The ever-popular Ocean-Spray cranberry “sauce.”
I believe strongly, that this belongs on every Turkey Day table – but that doesn’t mean there isn’t space for an alternative – to play along side.
A grown-up version perhaps. Like say, with tequila and jalapenos!
I love this stuff. I can’t say that everyone shared in my sentiments. As my mother and I were the only ones who devoured it.
You gotta know your guests, frieds. If they like the heat, the kick, the zest, the zip, then lay this on them.
I love all of the above, and think they rock the socks off this traditional side.
The tequila will cook off a bit but I suggest using something like Sauza, Patron, Cabo, Don Julio – all Blancos. Added bonus, you can enjoy the rest.
Try this. I emplore you. A fresh, juicy adventure – is a good thing…
