A S(al)ad Story
Little Miss Muffet
Sat on her tuffet
Eating her curds and whey.
Along came a spider
That sat down beside her
And frightened Miss Muffet away.
|Charlotte's Cranberry Salad
This is my Cranberry Salad in this case because when I
make it, I'm the only one at home who eats it because everybody else likes that gutless
Just follow the recipe on the Ocean Spray 12 oz bag of
cranberries. I think it calls for the bag of cranberries, one cup sugar and one cup water
- but check it out.
Wash the berries. Boil up your sugar and water until
dissolved - remember this is all from memory because I am preparing this cookbook
before the cranberry packages are all over the supermarket for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
When your sugar is dissolved, add the berries, bring back to
the boil then simmer until the berries pop.
Oh, instead of using water use the juice strained from
mandarin oranges or chopped pineapples because, when the berries are a little cool, you
add a can or two of strained mandarin oranges, or pineapples, etc. I like to add about 1/2
cup of walnuts, too.
Pour into a casserole and let jell. Garnish with some heavy
whipped cream, but only add about 2 tablespoons of sugar per cup of cream to keep the
German texture that I like.
Serve cool, but it's still a great sauce warm over ham,
turkey, pork, chicken, etc. - but remember to check those measurements.
