Quick Tip

Garlic
Garlic can rapidly go from golden to scorched. Before placing it in the oil, have the zucchini sliced and ready to go. When the zucchini and raisins hit the pan, they will lower the temperature of the oil and keep the garlic from overcooking.

    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.
