New Thanksgiving Recipe Classics: Cranberry Orange Mustard

The humble cranberry

Don’t get me wrong, I love tradition just as much as the next GeekMom.  But when it comes to Thanksgiving supper, I like to slip in a new recipe to see if I’ve found a new classic.  This is my favorite time of year to cook and bake, because it is the time when my favorite fruit is readily available on produce shelves: cranberries!  Each year I keep my eyes peeled for innovative recipes using this versatile berry, and this year, I’ve found Cranberry Orange Mustard, thanks to Serious Eats.  We’re having a Thanksgiving picnic this year: turkey and dressing burgers, green bean casserole salad, sweet potato fries.  This may be the condiment those burgers need.

Do you have a favorite cranberry recipe (that isn’t a highly guarded family secret, like my cranberry pound cake)?  What other Thanksgiving traditions do you keep, or which have you tweaked in the recent past?
