For the last several years Breezy Hill Orchards has been selling heritage cranberries from Kingston, Mass., If you are able to get to the Union Square market stock up! They freeze great. This year I am making a Thai Turkey Thanksgiving – the Turkey is brined for several days (I add some lime juice to help break down the mostly dark meat Heritage bird) then marinate it in fresh ginger, hot peppers, fish sauce, palm sugar and a little soy sauce and finally serve with a very spicy traditional Thai dipping sauce (which is traditionally used with Roast Chicken). These year in keeping with the Thai theme I’m making Pad Thai with roasted yams, a stir fry of brussels sprouts, chestnuts and watercress and a Cranberry Ginger Chutney! This week I am testing a sweet potato Bundt cake that is filled with rum soaked raisins and then soaked in a rum brown sugar glaze…recipe to follow if it works. Years again when I lived in Toronto I used to make a cranberry tart, sour cream, sugar a little flour were folded into cranberries which were then spooned into the tart shell and covered with a crumble topping – I have to find that recipe…anyway I digress, go buy some really awesome cranberries and get inspired!
