Yankee Ingredients – Cranberries in a Blanket

roll

Cranberries are a staple at most American family’s Thanksgiving tables. The form in which the cranberries appear varies from family to family. For example, my Northern Yankee family eats their cranberries boiled in water until they are saucy and sweetened with sugar. My Southern in-laws eat their cranberries with oranges and pineapples set in gelatin. With that being said, I don’t know what made me throw Fontina cheese, candied walnuts, and a tube of crescent rolls into my grocery cart alongside the bag of cranberries. Perhaps it could be that I was craving cheese? Or maybe it was because the nuts and crescent rolls were on sale? Whatever the reason, I am very happy with the choice of ingredients that helped showcase my delectable little cranberries.

Southern Kitchen – Bourbon Pecan Pie

pie

After getting this recipe correct I seriously considered renaming this website to Bourbon, Bacon & Butter : A Southerner’s Journey,  but I digress.  It’s recipes like these that Southerners should live and breath for.  The spirit of the South is alive in these ingredients, from the soil presence in the pecans, to the sweet Kentucky water in the Bourbon. There is nothing like the unique texture and flavor and sweet Southern reminders of a Pecan Pie.  A Thanksgiving tradition that we Southerners should all share a slice of. Here is our recipe for Bourbon Pecan Pie.
