  • 3 Bags  fresh Cranberries
  • 2 cups of organic sugar
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange  juice
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated orange zest
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons finely grated  red grapefruit zest
  • 1/2 cup  red grapefruit segments, medium dice
INSTRUCTIONS

Combine cranberries, sugar, orange juice, and both zests in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring until sugar is dissolved, about 5 minutes. ( depending on the cranberries you may need additional sugar)

Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally, then reduce heat to medium low and simmer until thickened and cranberries are beginning to fall apart, about 20 to 25 minutes. Spoon into a heatproof serving bowl.

Drain grapefruit segments, discarding any accumulated juices, and stir into cranberry sauce. Cool to room temperature, cover, and refrigerate until ready to serve. Serve cold or at room temperature.

Thanksgiving Molasses, Ginger, Chipoltle Carrots

Posted in Thanksgiving recipes.

I was looking through some old cookbooks looking for a few new Thanksgiving Recipes,  I came across this, Lately we have been using a lot of chipotle peppers in our food ..It really can give it a great new taste. So I thought this would really work

Glazed carrots are overcooked and mushy, the glaze is too sugary, and  no one really eats the cooked carrots except for your grandmother..  This changes it up a bit and really makes cooked carrots and added treat for Thanksgiving !As long as you cook the carrots barely to al dente (until they can just be pierced with a knife or fork), the rest will take care of itself here.

 

INGREDIENTS
  • 4 pounds carrots ( organic)
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 4 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoon light brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons light molasses
  • 3 teaspoons grated ginger
  • 1 small can of chipotle peppers in sauce  (you may need to chopped the peppers)
INSTRUCTIONS

Peel carrots and slice them on the bias (at about a 45-degree angle) into 1/2-inch-thick pieces (you should have about 10 cups). Fill a large pot with salted water and bring to a boil. Cook carrots until just tender, about 10 minutes. Drain. (If making ahead, drain the carrots and cool in ice water to halt cooking. Drain and refrigerate until ready to finish the recipe.)

Return carrots to the pot over medium-low heat, and add butter, sugar,chipotle, molasses, and ginger. Cook until carrots are warmed through and glazed, approx 5-15 minutes. Add some  freshly ground black pepper. 

Enjoy

Don’t Be Afraid To Be Your Own Advocate

Written by Heather Allen. Posted in Family Health.

Meet Heather Allen a Breast Cancer Survivor
"Women are taught to look for lumps, but my “lump” was better described as a firmness, more akin to superficial inflammation than an embedded lump.  Women are told to have a mammogram to investigate abnormalities, but radiologists told me that my abnormality looked normal on the screen.  Women are told to visit with a surgeon to inquire about a biopsy, but my first surgeon told me that a biopsy was not needed because I did not have cancer.  After 18 months with an undiagnosed firmness, and at my spouse’s urging, I made an appointment with a new surgeon who was willing to perform a biopsy.  Within two days of the biopsy I had the answer of IBC. If I hadn’t been so persistent in seeking a diagnosis, where would I be now?  I was my own best advocate toward getting the help I needed."
