easy fast cranberry sauce

A typical holiday recipe still even better with the use of the instant pot pressure cooker. I find I don’t have to stir and watch a pot on the stove, the machine does automatic  cooking for me. Total cooking time of the instant pot was ~12 minutes from closing  to opening.  The results were just as good as on the stove. (Duo Mini Instant Pot)

Adapted from the recipe on a you tube Food Network Video.

Gather the following ingredients :

  • 12 oz  bag cranberries , (either fresh or frozen)
  • 1 orange
  • 1 cup sugar

(I preheat the instant pot by setting it on saute, then cancel and set to pressure cook when ready to cover and seal)

Peel the orange skin, add to the above ingredients

Add all the ingredients, stir to combine

Squeeze the orange  juice  into the  the instant pot

Cover, set to pressure cook (high) for two minutes.

When cooking cycle is complete, jar and refrigerate.

It’s the Holiday season so decorate some jars and make a gift of the sauce !

Apple cranberry crisp

It’s fall weather time and if the cold blast prewinter weather cools you off then it’s apple crisp time.

Recipes abound, this one I like that adds the cranberries for tartness. You can cut back or eliminate the sugar with a substitute if you please.

4 apples (or whatever harvest will give you.)

1 & 1/2 cup cranberries,( I keep a few bags in the freezer)

1/3 cup sugar (or substitute)

3 tbls AP flour Or substitute

Zest (I used lemon juice)

Topping:

1/2 cup flour or equivalent (some rice flour substituted)

1/2 cup oats, either quick cook or steel cut ,your preference.

1/3 cup light brown sugar or substitute

1/4 cup almonds sliced

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, fresh grated for me.

Pinch of salt

1/4 cup unsalted butter

Mix the first 5 ingredients in a bowl, I lined a 10 inch baking pan with aluminum foil, and added the mix.

You can rinse out and dry the bowl, add the rest of the topping ingredients, mix with a pastry blender, spread on top, bake in a 350 degree farenheit oven for about 30 – 40 minutes.

Let cool slightly, best with rich vanilla ice cream, and /or whipped cream.

From the oven

Plated, yes I ran the broiler for some char!

fruit pizza tart strips

by using your favorite recipe for yeast dough, don’t be limited to the traditional pizza topping

press out the dough on parchment and use granulated sugar sprinkled on the paper to give the bottom crust color and crunch when baking.

add your favorite fruit topping, this recipe is very sweet, I’ll post it in a future posting.

It’s a combination of apples, raisins and cranberries

Bake in a moderate hot oven about 380 degrees

Carefully remove from the parchment, let cool and slice. Easy cleanup when using syrupy type ingredients

When cool, the topping congeals, nice snacks for the day or wrap in parchment and give away to friends and family.

Coffee pairing ?

French toast , sausage, with strawberry/cranberry jam

In the unusual manner for making French toast, mix 2 eggs with a small amount of milk and sugar. Dredge 2 thick slices of bread in the egg mixture till it sops up all the egg mixture. Grill along with several links of sausage.

20130413-105402.jpgMeanwhile slice strawberries and add to a saucepan with whole cranberries with enough water to cover the bottom of the pan. Set to boil and mash until jam is at desired consistency. Supplement with sugar to taste. Also grated lemon, or orange peel is an option to add.

Malted barley sour dough cranberry pancakes

Grind a small amount of malted barley ( used for brewing beer). Add to flour, about 1/2 cup of all purpose flour.
(I had a small amount of smoked Wyermanns malted barley ,and ran it through the finest setting on the coffee grinder, not spent grain but raw malted barley grains )

20130406-121914.jpg
Round out the dry ingredients with sea salt, raw sugar, and baking powder, 1 teaspoon baking powder, the other ingredients by preference

20130406-122536.jpg

20130406-122544.jpg
Wet ingredients include :1 egg, oil, and sour dough starter. The amount of starter gaged by the thickness of the batter.

20130406-122702.jpg
Boil some cranberries approximately 1cup, in a small amount of water, some will pop

20130406-123148.jpg
Prepare a griddle or frypan, mix up dry and wet ingredients, add cranberries.

20130406-123244.jpg
Cook and serve.

The sour dough starter and baking powder gives the flour and ground grains in the pancakes lightness so they aren’t heavy. Good flavor with the tartness of the cranberries. Even though a small batch of pancakes they are filling.

Flour less 2 tablespoons
Add 2 tablespoons spent milled grain from brewing process
