Happy thanksgiving and cranberry sauce recipe with a indian twist



      Hope you all had a fabulous and flavorful Thanksgiving. After moving to the USA Thanksgiving is one holiday I look forward too. And after having my children, we celebrate it even more. The last couple of years, we always celebrated with our close friends and cousins. My family doesn't live here but our close friends and cousins always make us feel at home. This year is no exception. I believe that festival not only brings food to our table they brings our heart closer too. My mom always says sharing food spreads your love. It is that time of the year where we are thankful for all little things in our life food, silly jokes, fun which make our life flavourful. By the way, what's your favorite food in thanksgiving table? I have many, can't just name one. I made cranberry sauce with an Indian Twist. You can call it relish too. Use it after Thanksgiving as a spread or jam as well.


Cranberry sauce with Indian jaggery instead of white sugar.

Ingredients
1. 4 cups cranberry
2. 1 cup jaggery
3. Zest of orange, a pinch
4. A pinch of cinnamon

Process
First clean and wash cranberry and in a pan heat four cups of water and yield the cranberry. Once start boiling add jaggery. Always in a medium heat. Let it cook for 10 to 15 minutes. Then Switch off the heat, add orange zest and the pinch of cinnamon. It will add extra flavor to your cranberry sauce.Your homemade cranberry sauce is ready. It is a lot healthier as I am using jaggery. It has so much health benefits for improving your digestion etc. You can get jaggery in any Indian or Asian store.

  2. I too originally come from where thanksgiving is not celebrated officially but due to being married to one who celebrates, I've come to love cranberry sauce especially. Thanksgiving apart from being a day set apart should always be in our hearts, where love ones gather from all over the country to celebrate. Thanks for posting.
