Thanksgiving is just a couple weeks away and that means one thing… cranberries!

Ok, so it doesn’t just mean it’s time to start looking for cranberry recipes for Thanksgiving, but it does in my world. I found the fresh cranberry love just 3 years ago when I made my own cranberry sauce for the holiday.

Before that, my only exposure to cranberry sauce was that jelly stuff in the can. Oh heck no!
