Okay, friends, if I become the size of a house, please point me back to this post and show me where I started going wrong. :) I am totally addicted to one of my favorite fall foods -- cranberry butter! MMM. I got this idea from Martha Stewart 3 or 4 years ago to use some of your extra cranberry sauce from Thanksgiving and make cranberry butter with it. That has developed from being a great left-overs-from-Thanksgiving idea to the REASON I make cranberry sauce as soon as November hits. Take equal parts softened butter and cool cranberry sauce (made from whole cranberries, not that "shaped like a can" kind) and beat them using a paddle attachment (I use my Kitchen Aid) until the butter is pink and chunky. WOW!
It's amazing on biscuits, warm rolls, toast, plain bread -- you know, all the health foods. :) It's a week and 4 days until Thanksgiving, and I might be able to last, with the help of a few rolls and cranberry butter.
