I've never been the type of person to suffer from any holiday blues but this does not mean that I don't appreciate that others do. So of course, my answer to holiday depression is....(wait for it) food!
Cranberries, ruby red on the plate with their combination of sweet, tart, bitter flavors combined with the various consistencies ranging from gelatinous (hello, my daughter's favorite canned variety which keeps it's shape for life, with the ridges still visible even after removed from the can and refrigerated for days!) to the smooth, silky conserve version (my fave).
I've been making this raspberry version of cranberry sauce for years, because I love raspberries. I'd be telling a lie if I did not say that I am hesitant to even share how simple this recipe is, because I'm pretty sure people think it's a big deal to make. (Shhh). Get over your holiday blues with my Cranberry Blogg and recipe for bright and delicious conserves.
