  • made a new recipe for cranberry sauce last night, it tastes great, but didn't thicken

    I never go shopping on Thanksgiving weekend!!!!

    Our dinner is vegetarian with the exception of the Turkey and gravy, so our roasted brussels sprouts have a balsamic cranberry glaze. I am doing roasted root vegetables, mashed white potatoes for the boys. Pumpkin pie (America's Test Kitchen-another new recipe), and an Almond Lemon cake.

    I just made a recipe for BFF and her family, to get rid of the crud, she thinks it might be working, cheap and easy so worth a shot...
    "MAGGIE’S COUGH REMEDY
    teaspoon Cayenne
    teaspoon Ginger
    1 Tablespoon Cider Vinegar (an organic one, like Bragg’s, is preferred.)
    2 Tablespoon Water
    1 Tablespoon Honey (use a locally produced raw honey, if possible.)

    Dissolve cayenne and ginger in cider vinegar and water. Add honey and shake well. Take 1 Tablespoon as needed for cough. Hoo-wee.
    Note: This is potent albeit watery syrup. It also doesn’t dissolve perfectly. Always shake well before using.

    If you make this in small batches as the recipe is written, there is no need to refrigerate.
    If you prefer, you may refrigerate this. It keeps as long as you need it. I like to make small batches (it is so easy to mix up.) and use it up in a just a few days.

    IMPORTANT MESSAGE: This remedy and dosage are for adults. I have no personal experience giving this to children, and cannot recommend it for children. Many have reported on this site (see comments) that they have had great success administering the remedy in smaller doses to their kids. This is those parents personal choice, which I respect. If the remedy has helped their family, I am grateful. But it is not my recommendation."

    I was actually out of cayenne and used powdered chili (not chilli powder). Also, mine was not thick or orange as she says, but it was good, and BFF put some in some hot tea. Next time I will likely do just 1T of water.

    • Oh, I will be making some of this and probably be doing shots of this over the break! LOL I am not worried about Lily taking it or not.. I can barely get her to take the Tylenol Cold stuff.. she does but usually with a fight unless she feels REALLY REALLY bad. Thanks for the recipe! I will get mom to take it as well. I do not have much of a cough, its all in the head but that Afrin really went to work. Brain freeze in the nose hurts btw.

      Balsamic cranberry glaze?? oh tell me more!! This would be a new addition I am interested in. Normally we do the shallots, bacon, etc. but the glaze sounds great!

      My cranberry sauce thickens up but I think the apples help it along
      fresh cranberries
      apple
      orange
      cinnamon stick
      a little sugar/sweetener etc.
      cook it all until it pops etc.

      I do not think I add anything else to it.

        My recipe had you add apple cider (and the apple), maybe too much apple cider? I will probably recook it and add a thickening agent, as much as I hate that, if it is still runny when I check it tonight.

        BFF said it reminded her of chutney, I liked the sweet hot aspect of it (but I just tasted it on my finger tip). I bet in tea you could add a bit of lemon and it would be good too.

        • No school today! Whaahoo!

          So Lil had an early med check and then the final holiday dinner shopping which was not horrible (it usually is). I think because our dinner is simple.

          Plans for today:
          -give the kitchen a little attention so I can cook and prep the cranberry sauce
          -steam the sweet potatoes
          -prep the celery etc.
          -make a place for the tree
          -get out the tree crap (ya ya ya)
          - I need to get the basketball goal I bought for Lily out of the back of the truck and set it up out back
          -unload the pavers and pots in the back of the truck
          -unhook the truck battery for the season (its a farm truck and will not be used until spring)
          -the ever growing laundry
          -unload the car from the plastic tubs of yarn given to Lily for therapy
          -IF TIME: head to the storage unit to get the outdoor Christmas crap

            mine really gels after cooking the snot out of it and then refrigerating.

                • Mine has cooked and has no visible berries left and still didn't gel so much as just thicken. I will pop it back on the stove and see what happens.

                  Hope your day is drama free. Have a great Thanksgiving!

                            • Great thanksgiving meal. Aside from the pumpkin cream pie, i was totally primal and their was no guilt. Kind of filled up on celery, slipped potatoes of all kinds. Decent leftovers for tomorrow.

                              Did not get the Christmas decorations up, in fact did not do much of anything.. meh..

                              I am skipping black Friday. I do have to get to Joanns fabrics tomorrow but then that's it.

                              • well.. the only leftover that is a slippery slope is pie. Other than that, good primal food in the house!

                                Mom and I got to thinking yesterday and we both agree this year's Thanksgiving meal was the best yet. I have a feeling we say that every year though!

                                I am not black friday shopping.. the thought of crowds.. eww.
