GINGER CRANBERRY SAUCE

Ah-h-h. I love cranberry sauce. Fresh ginger pops these berries to a new level, while the ruby red grapefruit takes them on a different but delectable texture journey. Serve hot or cold as a condiment for main dishes, a dipping/spreading sauce for horsd’oeuvres, as a preserve on your favorite toasted breads and biscuits, or as a topper for cakes and ice-creams. Versatile is what I call the CRANBERRY! A fruit for all dishes, occasions and seasons! Don’t wait till next year to revisit the CRANBERRY!
