Maple Walnut Cranberry Sauce – I'm Fine Now, Only Ane Used To Endure Nuts

It funny how for sure nutrient memories stick inwards your brain, as well as this maple walnut cranberry sauce is the upshot of i such remembrance. I can’t say you lot when or where, but sometime during my formative years I saw a cranberry sauce loaded alongside chopped walnuts, as well as I totally freaked. 

Not outwardly, every bit I convey a decent poker face, but within I was like, “what the hell is that?” That’s how it was for me early on inwards life. If I saw a nutrient prepared differently from the means I’d ever seen it, I simply assumed it was a terrible idea. Like ketchup on a hot dog…okay, then I happened to live on correct that time, but to a greater extent than oftentimes than non it’s non a nifty mental attitude to have.

As I pondered this season’s annual Thanksgiving cranberry sauce, as well as which styles I hadn’t tried yet, I remembered how off-putting that walnut-studded version was, as well as I decided to human face upwards my demons. I’m happy to report, every bit usual, I was totally wrong. It industrial plant perfectly.

Besides the nuts, I actually enjoyed the labor the maple syrup did sweetening the acidic berries. I recommend using a Grade B maple syrup if you lot tin discovery it. It’s darker as well as thicker, as well as boasts a stronger maple flavor, then it’s the preferred syrup for cooking as well as baking past times those inwards the know (also know as, “Canadians”).

So, if you’re looking for novel as well as exciting cranberry sauce recipe this vacation season, I promise you lot hand this a try. You’d live on nuts non to. Enjoy!
