Jim's Cranberry Sauce Recipe

There’s a special magic about Thanksgiving. Some say it’s all about great food. The more high-minded will say it’s about shared memories with family and friends. I'm in the middle and feel strongly both ways! With that in mind here’s a cranberry recipe my mother used to make. And her mother before her. My family has enjoyed it for generations… and I’d like to share it with yours.

I have over a dozen of your Christmas items, have given over a dozen to kids and friends- was looking for 2017 Christmas figurines and found you doing your cranberry sauce- will make this for Christmas—Thanks so much and God Bless and Merry Christmas—

I hope to have my husband make this for our gathering of family this Christmas, 2017. [Due to a health situation over the last 3 1/2 to 4 years, my husband has had to take over all the tasks I normally did and liked to do. However, he always prepared his own recipe for whole cranberries with whole oranges chopped finely together with sugar. Everyone loves it.] Your recipe sounds so special, with all the spices, pineapple, juices, nuts, and wine. I’m ready to try some right now! Thank you for sharing this recipe, special stories about your family and your work, and, of course, all the very special pieces you design and make for us. God bless and protect you and your family in the many days ahead.

I am looking forward to trying your cranberry sauce for Christmas dinner. I love your blue and white angels. I have two of them sitting on my kitchen windowsill and I look at them every day. I noticed the blue and white angel behind you on the kitchen counter. That is one of my favorite. I also collect the blue and white Santa’s that you have created I guess you figured I love blue and white. Are you planning on creating more blue and white? Thanks again for all the beautiful artwork.

I love all my Jim Shore pieces. I think my favorite is my Cinderella pieces. Although, everything is beautiful.
