Expert Tips

Cranberries already figured prominently in the diet of Native Americans when the Pilgrims landed. Today Massachusetts bogs produce about half of the commercial cranberry crop in the United States. The tart, acidic red berries have a natural affinity for oranges and nuts.

You can use leftover homemade cranberry sauce in place of the canned. Be sure to drain it well if it contains a lot of liquid.
