|We always have a family turkey dinner.|
Now my daughters share the responsibility of family dinners.
As the grandmother, I wind up playing monopoly with the grandkids.
The traditions change as the family evolves.
My daughters don't want to deal with large turkey leftovers so they
now roast turkey breast only.
And they add pears to the cranberry sauce.

|Hmmm... the pears sound good. I've never tried that.|
My new favorite is blue cranberry sauce- it's basically cooked whole cranberry sauce with blueberries. I'm making that one this year.

|12 oz. fresh cranberries|
1 cup water
1/2 cup white sugar (I increase that to more like a cup!)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp allspice
1 pint blueberries
1. Wash cranberries, cook in saucepan with water and sugar. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, stir and simmer for 10 minutes or until cranberries burst.
2. Slightly mash cranberries with the back of a wooden spoon to insure all skins are broken. Add the spices, mix well.
3. Remove from heat and mix in blueberries. The sauce will thicken as it cools. Refrigerate to chill.
Hetty, the above is from my original recipe, with 1/2 cup sugar. I found that too tart. I add a lot more sugar- about a cup.

|Thank you! It sounds yummy. It doesn't say how many blueberries?|

|Oh, sorry! I left out the most important ingredient! 1 pint blueberries.|
