Okay, here’s the deal. I’m going to be home MOST Of the day…except when I’m tossing the football around with my son or beating myself up at the gym. So why don’t we just all post our bestest, most favorite-ist Thanksgiving Recipes? It’s still early for most of us…we can still run to the store if we see something we MUST have. I don’t cook on Thanksgiving…Beautiful Wife has the holidays down pat. I’m more of a stew/chili/soup kind of cook.


Father Pat’s Cranberry Chutney

4 C Cranberries, whole
1 C seedless raisins
1 2/3 C sugar
1 T ground cinnamon
1 ½ tsp ground fresh ginger
¼ tsp ground cloves
1 C water
1 med onion, chopped (abt ½ C)
1 med apple, peeled, cored, and chopped
½ C thinly sliced celery (use the smallest stalks)

Combine cranberries, raisins, sugar, spices and water in a large non-aluminium saucepan and bring to boil.

When cranberries start to “pop” stir in the onion, apple and celery, bring back to a boil, then lower heat and simmer for about 15 minutes longer.


If put in sterilized jars and properly sealed, this can sit on the pantry shelf until needed.
Great with Turkey, Beef, Pork.
