Best Cranberry Recipes?

I was overjoyed to find fresh cranberries back in stores (NOW it's finally Fall!), so I bought a bucketload without any particular meals in mind. I'm vaguely thinking a cranberry sauce with poussin... Does anyone have favorite, fabulous cranberry recipes? Any comments would be most welcome!

  1. If you plug cranberries into the Search This Board box at the top of the page on the Home Cooking board, you'll find lots of suggestions. Here, for example, is one of mine (pork tenderloin with cranberries):

    1. Here is a nice cranberry sauce/chutney:

      Combine 12 oz. of cranberries with 3/4 c. of sugar and 1 c. water. Simmer just until tender and beginning to burst. Toast 3/4 c. of walnut pieces. Drain a can of mandarin oranges (or peel a few seedless clementines) and cut a few curls of orange zest from an orange.

      Combine the cranberries, toasted walnuts, orange segments, and zest. Squeeze in a bit of fresh orange juice to taste, or add a dash of Grand Marnier.
