My family buys the canned cranberry sauce, the jellied stuff that comes out of the can retaining the shape of the can, grooves and all! Is that great or what? If you're like us, you always buy too much cranberry sauce. The cans are fairly cheap and we always have a can or two leftover. Hell, there's probably a can in my cupboard right now from last year.
This is a recipe to use that cranberry sauce. It's for Cranberry Meatballs, and it's pretty easy to make (you use frozen, cooked meatballs, unless you want to make your own).
48 frozen cooked meatballs
1/2 cup cranberry sauce
1/4 cup orange juice
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. finely minced ginger root
1/8 tsp. white pepper
Bake the meatballs according to package directions until well heated. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, combine cranberry sauce, orange juice, brown sugar, gingerroot, and pepper. Cook over medium heat about 5 minutes until bubbly. Add meatballs to sauce and stir. Serve with toothpicks. Serves 8-10
