Expert Tips

  • Look for sweetened dried cranberries in the produce, bulk or dried fruit section of the grocery store.
  • Sweet potatoes are high in vitamins A and C, and low in fat. One-half cup of sweet potatoes is comparable to one medium carrot as an excellent source of vitamin A.
  • Garnish a platter of sliced turkey, sweet potatoes and cranberries with thin slices of orange and fresh marjoram sprigs. Have guests ladle the pan juices from a decorative bowl.
