Thanksgiving Recipe:

om Fine Cooking magazine’s Oct/Nov 2007 issue:

Cranberry Sauce with Vanilla, Maple Syrup, and Cassis – Yields about 4 cups
6 cups (about 1.5 lbs.) fresh or frozen cranberries, picked over and rinsed
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup fresh orange juice (from 1 orange)
1/3 cup creme de cassis (black currant liqueur)
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 Tablespoon finely grated orange zest (from 1 orange)
Half a vanilla bean, split and scraped

Put 3 cups of the cranberries and all the remaining ingredients in a 3- or 4-qt. saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; reduce the heat to medium, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the cranberries have popped and broken down and the juices look slightly syrupy, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in the remaining 3 cups cranberries and cook until these have popped, 3 to 5 minutes more. Remove from the heat; discard the vanilla bean and let cool to room temperature. Cover and refrigerate if not serving right away. Return to room temperature before serving. (May be made ahead up to one week in advance and kept covered in the refrigerator.)

Temperature/Weather Craft-a-Long

The idea is to take the concept of Kristen Cooper’s Temperature Scarf and use it in a way that works for you. Don’t want to commit to a year-long project? Try tackling a month-long project instead – the minimum size for a project is 28 days.

It is up to you what color/weight of yarn you use, and what the finished object will be. You decide how big you want your color sections to be. You decide what your color blocks represent (high temps, low temps, what the sky looks like, the day’s humidity level…)

It runs 5/17/13 – 5/27/14
