Loose Threads: Thanksgiving Cooking

Thanksgiving Cooking

I've just finished putting together one of my Thanksgiving favorites:  Apples, Cranberries and Yams.  Several of my dishes are already assembled and will go into the oven tomorrow morning for our afternoon Thanksgiving get together with family and friends.

There are a lot of versions of this recipe, but I omit the nutmeg, leave the peeling on my apples, and add extra cranberries.  Here is the recipe:

1 can Yams
3 apples chopped (the recipe says peeled, but I didn't peel mine)
1 cup fresh cranberries
1/8 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 stick butter
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Toss sugars, spices and apples.  Spray a casserole dish with Pam.  Layer 1/2 the yams in a casserole dish followed by half of the apple mixture and half of the cranberries.  Cut half of the butter in slices and layer on top.  Repeat.  

At this point I covered the dish with foil and put it in the refrigerator to bake tomorrow.  Bake at 350 for about an hour.  You can also top with pecans.   To fill a 13 X 9 baking dish, double the recipe.  

I've been to Shipshewana and have to sort through my photos before I post.  

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my readers.  

Thank you for being here and visiting my blog.
