It seems we're all about ways to use up cranberries and cranberry sauce over here. FreshTart has provided us with a great way to use up leftover Thanksgiving cranberry sauce. The result is seriously mouthwatering muffins.
As I mentioned below, I had the pleasure of chatting all things leftovers on Saturday morning, on the Fresh & Local radio show, with host Susan Berkson and Mike Madison of local hip hop group Unknown Prophets. While Mike is a musician by trade, he is also a fantastic cook. His passion for teaching children about good food is completely contagious. We had a great time talking about cooking fresh food, reaching out to chefs like Mike DeCamp at La Belle Vie for ideas and tips, and how involving children in meal preparation is The Way to encourage them to try new and different foods.
Since I had a nice amount of cranberry sauce leftover, I made up a batch of muffins and took them with me to AM950. Despite the fact that I forgot to put sugar in them — I baked them at 6:30 am, hey — the muffins got the thumbs up from Mike and Susan, and from my family, to such a degree that I've made them twice more.
