Cranberry sauce: it deserves the title of most overlooked Thanksgiving side. After all, turkey, stuffing, potatoes, and gravy are some seriously stiff competition. To make this year your most memorable turkey day ever, be sure to single out your side of cranberry.
Eschew your canned crimson collection, and you've got several directions in which to take the tart condiment: Add extra dimension with lively citrus and fresh ginger, or transform cranberry sauce into a savory condiment with the help of garlic, marjoram, bay leaves, and tomatoes. Up the jewel tone with sweet sugar beets, or mold your very own cranberry jelly. For some inspiration, check out an exhaustive collection of cranberry recipes at KitchenDaily.
