Cranegranate Sauce

In case you haven’t noticed, Mommie Cooks has gone through a bit of a shake up!  There is still work to be done in the upcoming months with regards to the overall look and feel, but for now I’m happy with where I’ve landed.  The biggest change that was made, which should really help to simplify things for all involved, is to make it much MUCH easier to track down recipes.  You now have both a comprehensive menu bar for searching as well as the search box on the top corner.  I’ve also added a visual recipe index on the side bar for those that are more in the mood to just stroll around and participate in a little food porn (I hope you gave your kids earmuffs for that last bit).  Don’t hesitate to let me know what you love and don’t love about the site as feedback is always appreciated.  Thank you so much to all of you who have posted such nice comments about the changes; it means a lot to me!

Now on to the good stuff.  Thanksgiving.  It’s coming quickly and if you’re hosting the big event this year you’re probably starting to work on your menu for the feast de resistance.  When putting together your menu, do you stick with the traditional Thanksgiving fare or do you venture out a bit and try something different?  If you answered the latter, then this recipe is for you.  Because after all, why stick with plain ol’ cranberry sauce when you can have a lip smackin’ delicious cranegranate sauce?

And just what is cranegranate sauce you may be asking?  Well, let me be so kind as to share.  It’s a combination of pomegranate and cranberry, cooked together in blissful contentment with a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg to make the whole thing sing.  If that doesn’t stir up your palate for a change, I don’t know what will.

Ingredients Needed:

1 Cup of Cranberries
1/2 Cup of Pomegranate Seeds
1/4 Cup of Sugar
1/4 tsp of Cinnamon
1/8 tsp of Nutmeg
1/2 Cup of Water

Throw all your ingredients in a pot.

Bring it to a boil, then turn it down to medium and let it cook for about 5 min.

Remove it from the heat, pop it in the fridge, and let it chill down for at least 3-4 hours.

And that’s all there is to it.  The only thing left to do is bring it out on Thanksgiving and watch the compliments roll in.
