Thanksgiving

A little catch up since I didn’t have the blog up and running for Thanksgiving. Here are a few of my recipes…My yummy turkey salt rub and cranberry sauce. I posted the pumpkin cheesecake which was also on the menu!

SALT RUB
½ c. kosher salt
1 ½ T. chopped fresh sage
1 ½ T. chopped fresh thyme
1 ½ T. chopped fresh rosemary
1T crushed peppercorns
2 mandarin oranges or clementines, zested

MIX ingredients in a glass bowl. Sprinkle all but 3T of the mixture over the turkey or chicken. Place poultry in a roasting bag and set in fridge overnight.

 RINSE off the poultry. Sprinkle the cavity with some of the rub. Then cover the poultry with softened butter. Sprinkle with remaining rub.

CRANBERRY SAUCE


3 mandarin or clementines oranges (or 2 regular oranges)
½ c water
¾ c sugar
1 bag cranberries

ZEST of 2 of the oranges (1 if using regular oranges) and juice 3 oranges. Mix all ingredients, except cranberries, in a pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and add cranberries. Simmer for 20 minutes, cranberries will pop. Using a wooden spoon press on cranberries that have not yet popped. Simmer another 10minutes or until desired consistency.
