fresh cranberry sauce

I don't know about you, but Thanksgiving seemed like it was a long ways off... until I looked at the calendar and realized it's only one month away!

Do you have your plans all set for Thanksgiving? If you are hosting, do you have your menu laid out already?

I don't... but I do know that this cranberry sauce will be on my Thanksgiving table this year and every year, that's for sure!

This is a very old, not-so-great photo.  
As soon as I can eat citrus again, I will make this sauce and take a new picture! 

I have such great memories of spending Thanksgiving with my Minnesota family, and this dish especially brings them all back.  (Isn't it amazing how tastes and smells can do that to us?!)

For me, Thanksgiving just isn't the same without it!

What are your Thanksgiving table Must Have's??  

(Besides the turkey, that is!)

Kay's Fresh Cranberry Sauce Recipe

1 bag raw cranberries
4 large granny smith apples, cored and quartered
1 orange, zested and peeled
3/4 - 1 cup of sugar, to taste

In your food processor, using the shredder attachment, shred the apples, orange and cranberries.   Dump the fruit into a separate bowl.

Switch out to the regular food processor blade, dump all the shredded fruit back in, add the sugar and zest and process until very fine.

Store in the fridge until you're ready to use!  (This tastes better if it gets to sit for a day or so!)

My cousin, Kay, makes this recipe using an old-fashioned meat grinder, but since I don't have one of those - I had to adapt it to my food processor, and I think it turned out great!!

I could eat the whole batch straight out of the food processor, and so could my kids... it's SO good!
