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.
Combine OJ, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, ginger and simmer for 10-15 minutes. Add cranberries, raisins, and pineapple and bring to boil. Continue at lower heat for about 8 to 10 minutes while stirring. The cranberries should open. Turn off heat and stir in walnuts and wine/brandy. Top with zest. Let cool and cover and refrigerate.
