A Lighter Thanksgiving
November 2, 2010 - Just a girl at the beach!
It's time to start planning our Thanksgiving menus and worrying about that extra holiday weight gain. With just a few tweaks you can be sure your pants still fit by New Year's! Over the next two months I'll be bringing you delicious recipes for your holiday table.
Let's start out with one of my favorites, cranberry sauce! It's essential for those turkey sandwiches the day after Thanksgiving. Here's a lightened up version:
8 oz fresh cranberries •20 oz can pineapple in pineapple juice •1/3 cup sugar (or agave)
Drain liquid from pineapples into a measuring cup. Add water so that you have a total of 1 cup liquid. Add to sauce pan with sugar and bring to a boil.
Place cranberries in a food processor or chopper and chop fine. Add to pan and stir well. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until thick (about 10 minutes).
Place pineapple in a food processor and chop. Add crushed pineapples to cranberry sauce and cook one more minute.
Allow to cool then place in a covered container and refrigerate overnight.
