Our 2nd Thanksgiving will be Saturday but thoughts now are on Christmas and the ways to update things I've made in the past. With reading many recipes on here for great sounding new (to me) ways of making even the standard cranberry relish not so standard, I was hoping for recipes that could take me more out of the box for a dish I could bring to a potluck or party or get together and be proud of.
I love making pate's to bring to party's with a mix of bread types or the most unusual olives into a tepenade with specialty flatbreads from Alli's Grill or the Formula 44 after dinner drinks (made 44 days before) to sip around a sparkling Christmas tree after a pleasing dinner at nights' end.
The link for Melinda Lee's Amaretto cranberry relish is in "archives" under Cranberrys on her website
The link I keep copying and pasting takes me to wrong thing > a cookbook for cocktails, so obviously there's a misfire in the website.
I found it going into her web site (left side) (clicking on recipe archives) at the very bottom is featured recipes, click on it and you'll see "Thanksgiving (the list)" click on it and you'll see all cranberry recipes.
Saturday i'll be making the Cranberry chutney with scallions and dates. Sounds delicious.
Are there ways you've "helped" an old standard? Please post some new and delicious ideas for the upcoming December holidays. TIA
