Quick Tip

Garlic
Instead of peeling and slicing the garlic, simply smash the unpeeled cloves with the blade of a heavy knife, discard the skins, and cook the crushed cloves. You’ll still get plenty of flavor.

    Cranberries

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
