Cranberry Sauce

I never have left overs, but on the rare occasions I do, I love it in smoothies, or on a grilled turkey panini! Scrumptious!

Jan's Tip: You can blend in some chopped walnuts if you like. I choose not to if guests are coming to dinner, as you never know who has nut allergies, or just plain doesn't like them. (besides, putting up with our family is all the nuts they can usually handle! )
