Not From A Can Cranberry Sauce-Tami’s Corner

Dish With Clarissa


This special Turkey day delight comes straight from Tami’s Corner and not from a can. Now I am not knocking canned cranberry, but why open a can when you can make it yourself in about 35 minutes or so the day before, like today! And the taste of fresh cranberry sauce, well it beats the can each time!!



1 bag of fresh cranberries
1 ganny smith apple cored, peeled and diced into small chunks equal to the cranberries
Zest and juice of half an orange, then remove rind and cut up


1/4 cup water enough to cover orange zest and pieces
1 to 1 1/4 cup sugar (depending on how tart or sweet you want it)
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2  tsp ground cinnamon

Zest half of the orange and set aside
Squeeze the juice…

Clarissa Ellis grew up learning to cook with her mom. In a time where traditional home-cooked food was going out of style, Clarissa learned to love and make those simple 'comfort foods' and family favorites. As she grew - and her mom got busier with long work hours, Clarissa supported her mom by taking over most of the cooking duties around the home. By the time Clarissa started high school - she had absorbed her mother's approach to traditional, homestyle Italian dishes; and thanks to So Cal's great weather year round... a love of cooking on the grill. Fast forward 30 years and Clarissa has never stopped cooking. She continued to explore food, learning more from So Cal's amazing cultural variety, trying things out on her family and her friends... and always learning. Never content to merely cook a good meal, Clarissa developed the habit of talking sharing her ideas with family, friends and coworkers. After a lifetime of learning and experimenting, Clarissa's love affair with traditional Italian cooking, and 'comfort foods' has grown into a robust, creative and cross-cultural approach to cooking that still manages to remain 'accessible' to the rest of us. Now Clarissa brings her experience and her approach online through her blog - giving all of us a chance give ourselves, our friends and our family the benefits of a lifetime of passion and joy in cooking simply great meals.
