Isn’t Fall the best…

A ocllection of fall pumpkins and leaves

Fall decorating, crafts and

recipes are the best.  It’s getting

colder outside, the leaves are falling,

and we begin to prepare for the colder

months and getting ready for the holidays.

Nature becomes beautiful with all the colors, the air becomes crisp, the breeze starts to blow and the leaves are now falling to the ground.

Don’t get me wrong…..I LOVE SUMMER, it’s great.  But there is something really special about fall.

Now that Halloween is over our thoughts migrate to Thanksgiving, being with family and/or friends, favorite traditions and family favorite recipes.

Grandma's Favorite Cranberry Apple Salad

Apple Cranberry Salad – an old Family Recipe

cranberry-salad

It’s not Thanksgiving in my house unless there is my       grandmother’s Apple Cranberry Salad on the table.                         Since I was a little girl this has been a staple at our                      holiday table.  Grandma would make this dish to take                        to all the church functions as well as our family                           holiday dinners.

Ingredients:

  • Apple-Cranberry-Salad-Collage-150x1501 12oz bag of whole cranberries
  • 3 large apples
  • 3 oranges
  • 1 cup  walnuts
  • 1 cup sugar (or sweeten to taste)

Clean cranberries.  Cut up apples and oranges.   Grind up apples, oranges, cranberries and walnuts in a food processor.  Add 1 cup sugar and mix together.  If needed add more sugar to sweeten to taste.  This salad is like a relish consistency, and is best as it sits in the fridge and flavors blend together.  A friend told me this salad freezes well.  From my family table to yours….

Enjoy!
