photo by Casey FreemanI made my favorite fresh cranberry relish, a ginger apple pie and a pumpkin praline pie. That's a lotta pie!
Fresh Cranberry Relish
1 6 oz container of fresh cranberries
1 apple, peeled and cored
zest and juice of 1 orange
pinch of salt
Blend in a food processor until it is the consistency you like.
Ginger Apple Pie
Peel and core about 5 cups of apples. Add 2 TBS shredded fresh ginger, and 3 TBS butter (in pieces). Sprinkle 3 TBS of white sugar and a pinch of salt, a dash of vanilla and stir. Pour on top of unbaked pie crust.
For the topping, combine, 1 1/2 cups of almond meal, 1/3 cup brown sugar and 3 TBS butter and a dash of nutmeg. Blend with your hands or with a mixer, so that the butter is well incorporated. It will be very crumbly.
Sprinkle topping on apples, and bake at 350 until apples are soft, and edges of crust are golden.
Happy Thanksgiving, all!
