If you don’t know, I have a very sweet spot in my heart for my Airstream travel trailer. I have only had her for a little over one year and I am absolutely smitten. When my family and I are not vacationing with her, I am at home thinking about our next trip. Really. Where will we go? What will I cook? I can not wait!
That being said, we celebrated our Thanksgiving holiday, in our Airstream on a chilly beach in the San Juan Islands here in Washington State. You can read about our trip here. I wanted our trip to be easy. Simple. Enjoyable. I didn’t want to make a big fuss over our Thanksgiving dinner. I would roast a turkey, buy a nice big block of sweet sharp cheese and some fresh bread and that would be it. Of course you need cranberries to go right? I prepared them at home before our trip so they would set up nicely. That’s the beauty of my simple cranberry sauce.
1 bag (12 ounces) cranberries 1 package (8 ounces) dried figs of your choice, roughly chopped 1 cup of brown sugar 1 cup water 1 cinnamon stick A splash of red wine vinegar Pinch of saltIn a medium sized saucepan, place all of your ingredients together and bring to a boil. The cranberries will pop, thicken and everything will turn into a beautiful thick, sweet red sauce. Let cool and store in the fridge if not using straight away. Bon appetit!
