BE THANKFUL BENTO #6
The whole cranberry sauce was made this morning, and this little dish of it is topped with the pink foam skimmings. I like the skimmings best from any jam or jelly. Whole cranberry sauce could not be easier - just the bag of cranberries picked over so the really mushy ones and the stems are removed - add a cup of water and a cup of sugar (like it tells you to on the bag), let it boil for a few minutes until the cranberries pop, and you're done. How hard is that? I love the sweet and tart with meat of any kind.
