Planning Thanksgiving dinner is a lot of work, especially when you have a large extended family like mine. Your mind is running all over the place, and there are undoubtedly a stack of to-do lists floating around to ensure you have every last detail nailed down. But, sometimes there’s something that gets overlooked and forgotten. It happens, it’s no biggie….well, unless you happen to forget the turkey. A couple years we were thiiiiiiiiisssss close to sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner sans cranberry sauce.
Do not forget the cranberry sauce this year!
No Thanksgiving dinner is complete without a side of delicious cranberry sauce! Instead of picking up canned cranberry (which is loaded with sugar!), why not make your own. This sauce combines fresh cranberries, warm fall spices, a hint of citrus and is lightly sweetened with agave syrup.
There’s a lot to get done when it comes to prepping for a big holiday dinner, so I love dishes that can be made ahead of time. Between prep and cook time this cranberry sauce is ready in 15 minutes, and can be made up to 3 days in advance.
