Thanksgiving day is in 2 weeks so that means many of you have already started planning your dinner menus. A must have staple on the American Thanksgiving Day table is cranberry sauce. Tough it is a staple on many American tables in my family’s Mexican American fusion holiday table it was not to be found. Secretly I was always glad it never made an appearance. It wasn’t that I disliked cranberries, no it was they way I saw it come out of cans. To me it looked like the gelatinous globs that collect on top of soup stock with nothing but preservatives to get it to that state. No knock on those who enjoy it. Actually I’ve never even tasted those cans so I might very well change my mind. I don’t know. Have you guys tried it and what do you think of it ?

The good thing about being in Europe is that those cans of cranberry sauce are not to be found,(Well at least not in my local shops.), so homemade was the only option. As I began doing research for a good basic recipe I came across so many great recipes. But in the end I just winged it and added as I went. So this is the simple and boozy cranberry sauce recipe I made. Hope you like it and please continue to the bottom for some amazing cranberry sauce recipes by members of our lovely community.
