HOLIDAY RECIPES REMINDER .. and more

POST #709
Several weeks ago, I published a list of places where you can find raw vegan Thanksgiving recipes.  Of course, I listed my own recipes first, I mean, this is my blog.  I also listed places where holiday recipes are listed free for the taking.

I’ve just learned of a new collection: Real Life Raw Holiday Foods, by Tina Jo Stevens    (this is a book for sale)  Check it out if it pleases you to do so.

Since, of course, you are after getting the perfect recipes for  your traditional holiday, as I become aware of other collections, I will publish them.

Oh, and, BTW, ONLINE CERTIFICATE PROGRAMS, which seems to be related to SUITE 101, continues to list the article in which all of my holiday recipes were published wholesale, without my permission, and with no reference to the source of the recipes.  A few of these recipes do now lead you back to my recipe page, but not all of them.  I have asked this site several times to remove this article.  They continue to refuse or even acknowledge my legitimate request.   Bloggers and other on-line publishers, please do stay aware of where your intellectual property is going.  Many will appropriate your work and pass it off as theirs because they realize that most of us bloggers cannot afford to sue them in court.  I cannot do that, but I can continue to announce it to all within hearing distance when I find someone who has stolen my work.

CRANBERRY SAUCE – oh yum!

CRANBERRY SAUCE

Oh, yum!  I’ve been working my way through the 5 lbs of fresh cranberries – tomorrow what is left must go in the dehydrator if I want to keep them.

Tonight I made a very yummy cranberry sauce.

  • 2 C fresh cranberries
  • 1 apple
  • 3 mandarin oranges (you could use one large regular orange)
  • 4 dates, soaked and pitted

Put all ingredients in the food processor and process to your choice of texture.  I ran the processor for quite a while, but the sauce still came out chunky.

This is so yummy that I think I could make a meal of it, and I probably will.  I ended up doubling the recipe, because I have to have something for a party tomorrow, and it tasted so good that I wanted to keep some for Thanksgiving, although I may eat it all tomorrow.  This could definitely qualify as a dessert on its own!

CRANBERRIES!!! Cranberry-apple juice and cran-apple sauce

I got 5 lbs of cranberries with my CSA distribution last night.  These are fresh cranberries,1 so I have to move quickly, or else put them all in the dehydrator.  I don’t recall ever having had fresh cranberries before, so this is exciting.

Tonight, I made an apple-cranberry cocktail, to start.

  • 3 apples
  • 1/2 C cranberrries

Process through the Champion juicer.

I got about 1 pt of juice and about 1 cup of “ cran-apple sauce”

The juice was very sweet, tasting mostly of apples.

Later in the evening, I went back and put @ 2 C cranberries into the juicer with three big apples.

This came out tart (I liked it) and the “cranapple sauce was quite tart – I added about a T of cinnamon, and it tasted good to me (it is sitting in the refrigerator, mulling, for tomorrow’s lunch.
