Thanksgiving Holiday can be a time for New Traditions

 

Martha White®Nashville, TN – What’s the first thing that pops into your head when you think of Thanksgiving dinner? Most people would say turkey, but running a close second is probably dressing or stuffing, specifically cornbread dressing if you have Southern roots.

A tried and true recipe that dates back generations is traditional cornbread dressing, seasoned with onion, celery and sage. To spice up the holiday table this year, add a few non-traditional ingredients to the dressing that will likely be the start of a new Thanksgiving dinner tradition.

Use Cranberries to Whip up Holiday Treats

 

Martha White®Nashville, TN – Cranberries were seldom seen outside the holiday season and even then they were primarily served as sauce with the turkey just a few years ago. Now, sweetened, dried cranberries, along with cranberry juice and sauce, are enjoyed throughout the year. Fresh cranberries are generally available only from September to December, but you can find frozen berries all year round.

“The popularity of baked goods like cranberry muffins, scones and breads has helped us appreciate the unique, tart and tangy flavor of these little berries. Since dried and frozen products are easily accessible, we can include cranberries in our favorite recipes any time,” observed Martha White® baking expert Linda Carman. “However, since the harvesting season for fresh cranberries so perfectly corresponds with our holidays and the tradition is so strong, cranberries will always be a part of holiday celebrations.”
