A FESTIVE CRANBERRY SAUCE
And here's a wonderful addition to the holiday season -- a unique cranberry sauce recipe that I clipped from the L.A. Times newspaper back in the late 1970s. It was called "Cranberry Sauce for Helen." It is quick and easy. Why settle for something canned if you can do a really yummy homemade version that is better!
HELEN'S CRANBERRY SAUCE
4 cups cranberries
2 cups sugar
1/3 cup brandy
Place cranberries in a 13x9-inch baking pan. Sprinkle evenly with sugar. Stir in brandy. Cover and bake at 300 degrees for one hour. Store in covered container in refrigerator. Makes about 1 quart.
As all you cooks know, the alcohol burns off in the cooking, and all you have left is a great touch of flavor. Try it; you'll like it!
