Mombot Monday -- Special Recipe Flashback

Cranberries offer a refreshing tartness, good not just for winter, but also springtime dishes. This yummy and simple recipe for Cranberry Sauce makes a delicious treat over toasted English muffins.

We eat cranberries once or twice a year and every time I think, "We should do this more often." I was a little intimidated by them as a cook until last year when I made my first cranberry sauce. It's actually very simple. So I am sharing my own recipe for anyone who, like me, has ever been intimidated by cranberries.

Easy Cranberry Sauce Recipe


-1 cup fresh cranberries, washed and drained
-1 medium green apple, cored and chopped into half-inch pieces
-1/3 medium orange chopped into half-inch pieces, leave rind on
-1 cup carbonated limeade beverage (12 ounces of 7Up or Sprite may be substituted)
-ground cinnamon to taste
-ground nutmeg to taste


Place all ingredients in sauce pan over medium heat. Cook with lid on until sauce begins to simmer. Remove lid and simmer, stirring occasionally, until cranberries pop open. Remove from heat. Serve hot over toasted English muffins or your favorite breakfast pastry, or serve cold along with turkey or ham.

Hi! I am just popping over from the party! I loved reading your blog! I had a good giggle at your *What's in a name post*!
It is called a *bottom* at our house! (Here in New Zealand fanny is slang for vagina. Causes great hilarity when we hear Americans talking about their *Fanny packs*!)

Hey there! I'm party-hoppin' and decided to see what you're up to! I love your sense of humor - your post on "sh_t" completely mimics what I got through at home, except the word in these here parts is "damn"! Men! Thanks for sharing the cranberry recipe. I've always been intimidated by them but this one looks doable!

Have a great party week!
