Cranberry Conserve

Recipe by KittyKitty

Great for Thanksgiving. if you don;t know what a conserve is, it is similar to a jam consistency, but has nuts. Serve them over toast, biscuits, breads, etc.

So easy, and so delicious. A family favorite (of course nothing can substitute for "dog food" style cranberry sauce :-), but this recipe appears on our table with every turkey and chicken.
