Cranberry sauce

Ahh it's that time of year again... Thanksgiving. Of course you will have your turkey, dressing, sweet potatoes and all the classic things that make Thanksgiving so special. We can't forget the cranberry sauce. There is nothing like those sweet-tart berries that go so perfectly with our meal. I don't know about your family but here at the Ismail house we absolutely have to have it. Usually the kids "make it". When I say make it I mean cracking open the can and slicing it up! We absolutely LOVE the jellied cranberry sauce over the whole berry or homemade varieties. Jellied sauce has been a tradition in our family for as long as we have been together. I personally love the homemade type as well but my family would feel like I ruined Thanksgiving if I put anything other than what they are used to. How about your family...what type of cranberry sauce do you prefer? Do you have any special traditions for Thanksgiving?

  2. I prefer none, I despise cranberry sauce. Just give me the dressing a little gravy and I'm good.

  5. I'm not crazy about cranberry but for the holidays we use the kind that can be sliced. This year I mistakenly picked up a sauce kind so I hope that goes over well.

  6. We love cranberry sauce -- I like both the jelly and the whole but the rest of the family only likes the jellied! I try to get it out more than once per year! I love cranberries in lots of things! They add great color and spark to tossed salad!

  7. I usually have turnips during the holidays. Most people call them rudabagas. They are soooo awesome. I wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving!

  9. I love the Cranberry. It is a staple. I also love the way it is presented in the above pictures. The rings from the can is barely noticable.

  10. Jellied, definately jellied. One of my favorite sandwiches is lunch meat turkey and instead of mayonnaise, I spread cranberry sauce on the bread. A slice of havarti cheese and oh my gosh, it's an awesome sandwich.
