...and Now, The Final Word:

Leaving home of friends who had us over for Thanksgiving dinner.

Tall blonde Midwestern hostess hands me two containers. One is empty.

TBMH: Here's your Servin' Saver. I kept the rest of that cranberry sauce. It was delicious.

The second container is full of a different cranberry sauce DIH thoughfully provided.

DIH: Don't you want to keep the rest of this?

TBMH: Oh, nobody liked that one.

After much reluctance, my public has come to acknowledged that my cranberry stuff beats the daylights out of that pectin-engorged stuff.

The classic stuff always beats the new, kinda like the Tridentine Mass having it all over the bongos-and-tambourine-and-kumbaya stuff.

I'm just sayin'.

Joke: there is one respectable use for the canned stuff.

1 can whole cran. sauce, a quarter cup chopped onion, 3/4 c. orange juice, 1/4 tsp. each cinnamon and ginger.

Simmer 30 -40 min. Ooh la la.
