Happy Friday y'all!! I hope you have some quality kitchen time scheduled for this weekend, I think I'm going to take a break from packing and do some creating myself. I woke up today so unbelievably stiff this morning thanks to my tumble down the stairs yesterday, which has made doing anything difficult. However, nothing was going to keep me from giving y'all something juicy to read ;) And no I'm not taking about the latest gossip, but I am talking about berries.
Keeping with my Thanksgiving throw back, I have the final recipe that I used back in November! This particular Thanksgiving accompaniment is something I'm not a huge fan of, but that being said the homemade version I whipped up tasted pretty good on it's own lol. I have to try everything I make in order to adequately write a good post, well that and I ask the person I make it for. Today's post contains cranberries, so you can only guess what I used them for. If you guessed cranberry jelly then you'd be correct! Nathans dad loves it with his turkey, so I asked him if I could make it for him. He agreed on the condition that I didn't vary too far from the flavor his lovely canned stuff tasted like >_< Of course I took that as I could make it flavorful but don't add too much extra spice to it, lets be honest most pre packaged stuff doesn't have much flavor period. Since I haven't eaten too much cranberry jelly in my life (okay, any lol), I had to do some research to see what types of spices others had used. Thankfully I had a general understanding on how to make the jelly itself from when I made my pie fillings, it's a little different but not overly.
