Annual Thanksgiving Recipe Exchange -- Bourbon-berries and Cream Puffs

Bumped since I only got this up late last night.

Oop. Pardon the late post. Busy, busy with family.

For the last few years, Patheos' Elizabeth Scalia and I have exchanged recipes just before Thanksgiving — it’s a fun little way of finding something new to bring to the table. See past posts here, here, and here.

This year, Elizabeth shared a recipe for Sal's cream puffs. Desserts are always a welcome idea and I agree with her about the chocolate sauce!

I'm having Thanksgiving dinner with my best buddy and his family before moving on to my folks' dinner. He's preparing Bourbon-berries in lieu of the traditional can-shaped cranberry sauce.

Here's what you'll need to do.

1 lb. of cranberries (about 4 cups).
2 cups sugar.
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon.
1/4 cup bourbon.

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Combine first 3 ingredients in 9x13-inch baking dish. Cover tightly with foil and bake until cranberries are tender and sugar is dissolved, stirring once, about 1 hour. Remove from oven and stir in bourbon. Refrigerate cranberry sauce until well chilled. Keeps for about a week. Transfer to bowl and serve.

Obviously, perfect for Thanksgiving. But it also goes great on English muffins with cream cheese and ham the morning after.

What new recipe are you and yours having this year? Share in the comments. Check out what Elizabeth's commenters are sharing with her.

Y'know, I wonder how it'd go if you put the bourbonberries on the cream puffs?

4 I got this recipe from Liz Smith's column years ago and have made it a few times. It's delicious!

The Pink Teacup's Sweet Potato Pie

2 lbs yams, peeled and cut into chunks
1/2 cup butter
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons white sugar
3 large eggs, separated
1/2 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon grated orange rind
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1 unbaked pie shell
whipped cream
Directions:

1 Peel and boil yams until mashable.

2 Preheat oven to 450°F Add butter, spices, salt, and sugars to hot yams. Beat until light and smooth.

3 Beat egg yolks until light and add to mixture. Stir in orange juice, rind, and milk.

4 Beat egg whites until stiff and fold into egg yolk mixture. Pour mixture into unbaked pie shell.

5 Bake at 450°F for 10 minutes, reduce heat to 350°F and bake for 30 minutes, or until pie puffs up and is firm in the middle.

6 Cool on rack, and add whipped cream, if desired.

10 Made cranberry sauce in the rice steamer yesterday. A bag of fresh cranberries, Half cup of sugar, light rum and a little molasses to add depth.

Worked great except for the (very tasty) juice running all over the counter.

12 Smother one fresh Targ liver in Denebian Slime Mold sweat and leave in the open under direct sunlight for at least 6 hours.

In Riker's favorite bike helmet boil the Targ liver in 2 liters of Lt. Troi breast milk.

Serve the Targ liver in thin slices over rice.

14 Here's a tip for your Turducken: instead of cooking them all at once, cook the duck stuffed with chicken first for a little bit. Then when you stuff that in the turkey, you won't have to wait as long for the inside to come up to temp. Often times the turkey will dry out while you wait for the chicken to reach the right internal temperature. It's also awesome to have crispy duck skin on the inside.

19 My daughter learned recently that the Pilgrims had venison at the first Thanksgiving and thinks that we should have it.

I may have to run out tomorrow and get some from a local meat market...but it's been raining for days and the temp is getting into the 20s tonight, so I'm not so sure it will be safe to go over the river and through the hood.

21 Hawaiian Sweet Rolls

1/3 cup milk (cold is fine, warm would help it rise faster)
1 scant tablespoon instant dry yeast
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted and slightly cooled
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
An 8 oz. can crushed pineapple, NOT drained (about 2/3 cup)
4 cups bread flour (all-purpose would also work)
1 teaspoon salt

For the tops:
1 egg
1/4 cup water
A few tablespoons melted butter

Mix together the milk and yeast.
Let it sit for about 5 minutes.
Add the oil, butter, sugar, eggs, and pineapple and mix to combine.
Add the flour about 1/2 cup at a time, mixing well after each addition.
Add a little more if you need to.
It should be sticky, but not gooey.
Add the salt.
Knead for about 10 minutes by hand or in a stand mixer with a dough hook.
Cover with a damp cloth (or grease the top) and let rise until doubled (somewhere around 45-60 minutes).
Punch the dough down and divide into twelve equal balls.
Place in a well buttered 9x13 inch pan and let rise again until doubled (again, 45-60 minutes).
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
Beat together the egg and water for the top and brush the tops of the risen rolls with the egg wash.
Bake for about 25 minutes or until the tops are nicely browned.
Brush the top with some melted butter and serve warm.

23 Heh. There was a lot of love for the can-shaped cranberry sauce on a food thread last week. Quite a lot of us came out of the woodwork.

I don't make new recipes for Thanksgiving proper - I save the adventures for other meals. I like T-day (which in our case will be tomorrow) to be as relaxed a meal as possible.

Umm, the meat market's web site says they have tenderloin and strip loin, so probably like one of those maybe.

29 My usual way to prepare venison is rubbed in oil/garlic mixture, salt & pepper, then seared in a hot pan - leaving it rare in the middle. Sometimes I'll deglaze the pan with red wine & make a little pan sauce with shallots & thyme.

30 I'm impressed by those of you who have the aptitude and patience to bake several types of pies. I'm usually too worn out to do that, plus I've never had enough fridge space to get them prepped in advance. It's a shame, because I love pie. But I make do with Marie Callender's.

35 Y-not, pumpkin pie is about as easy a thing as you can make. The recipe on any can of pumpkin will do. Use the Pillsbury pie crusts and nobody will know the difference.

I've never been a fabulous baker so that is my tried and true Thanksgiving dessert.

That cranberry-bourbon sauce is also excellent on top of a baked brie. I have served that as an appetizer before and it was a huge hit.

6 cups squash
1/2 cup butter

40 We hosted Thanksgiving for the first time last year and I thought I'd try something new with the turkey (which I used to hate). So I broke out the sous vide and made the best turkey I've ever had. The recipes are at the link in my name, if you want details.

But long story short - I split the bird into white and dark meat (even in the oven without a sous vide, it makes more sense to cook them separately), put in my herbs and butter or duck fat (as well as some bourbon and maple syrup for the breasts) into the bags with the bird, sealed them up and cooked them for 3 to 6 hours in the water bath. They then stored for up to 3 days (or a couple months in the freezer).

On Thanksgiving day, put them into a 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes to warm them up and crisp the skins.

So you just mix the cake stuff right from the box into the pumpkin and that's it? Or am I misunderstanding and you add whatever the cake box calls for as well? It sounds really good, but I don't want to waste ingredients doing it wrong.

44 DId all the shopping for Thursday today. Took the twins and spouse along so we made short work of it. Got home, unloaded everything, put it away and surveyed the grandeur of the full pantry and loaded fridge.

Then one of the boys looked at me and asked "So what's for lunch?"

Yeah, except for Turkey-day designated items, the pantry and fridge are empty.

45 Damn, it's almost too turbulent to read this one tonight somewhere between BWI and MCI. I normally do a full spread, but due to the fact I'm in a plane today and not cooking, I sadly get the year off. i will throw a couple pies together tomorrow just to have some lower carb options amongst the maelstrom.

Thanks, Obamacare...sigh. Not.

47 Easiest candy/dessert/pseudo-bar cookie/crack ever. I swear, you literally would think I sprinkled heroin on top. And yes, I know the proper use of the word literally.

Fakey toffee:

Line a 10x15 pan with foil, preferably Reynolds' Non-Stick, and line up saltine crackers in it.
Cook 1cup sugar (7 oz) and 1cup butter (8oz) on stovetop until boiling and starts to carmelize. Remove from heat, stir in 1 14 oz can of condensed milk until smooth. Pour over crackers, bake at 375 for 10-15 minutes until bubbly and browned.
Remove from oven, let stand two minutes (to let the top settle) and sprinkle 1cup (6 oz) white chocolate chips over the top. Let them melt a little, spread with a spatula, and top with whatever. The one I did for Halloween was toasted, sliced almonds and cranberries.
Put in the fridge for an hour and cut or break into pieces. This makes a super-awesome gift, packed up in a pretty box or in a cello bag with some curling ribbon. Or do a whole gift setup with this, some candied nuts, dipped pretzel rods, etc.

Trust me, someone will LOVE a food gift much better than another desk knick-knack, pen set, ugly tie, pair of slippers, whatever. Half my gift list is baked/cooked goods and months after Christmas, I still get people asking me about what I made for them, wanting recipes, "joking" about refilling the container, that sort of thing.

You can make this with almost anything on top. Do dark chocolate instead of white, chopped pecans and crushed malted milk balls. Or milk chocolate and chopped PB cups (don't smear those, let them stay chunky, it looks better) and peanuts. Or chocolate, mini-marshmallows (smear those a bit; the swirled effect is pretty) and almonds for Rocky Road. Stir cinnamon into the mixture after it's smooth before you pour over the crackers and sprinkle a little (LITTLE) bit of chipotle peppers over the chocolate, do blueberries and almonds with white chocolate or cinnamon and raisins or, well, you get it.

Now I have to go make cocoa pecan pies with salted caramel. Everyone comes here to eat. Go figure.

48 I made this several years ago and just passed the recipe on to mom earlier today.

Mashed Sweet Potatoes and Carrots w/Sweet and Sour Walnuts
(Bon Appetit November 2005)

2 pounds red-skinned sweet potatoes (yams)

6 tablespoons butter, divided
2 pounds carrots, peeled, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
2 tablespoons (or more) water
Pinch of salt

1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup Sherry wine vinegar
1 cup walnuts, lightly toasted

Preheat oven to 400°F. Bake potatoes until tender, about 45 minutes. Cool slightly; peel. Pass through ricer or food mill into large bowl.

Melt 2 tablespoons butter in large pot over medium heat. Add carrots, 2 tablespoons water, and pinch of salt. Cover and bring to boil; reduce heat to medium and simmer until carrots are tender, stirring occasionally and adding more water by tablespoonfuls if dry, about 25 minutes. Add 1/4 cup butter. Use potato masher to mash carrots coarsely. Stir potatoes into carrots. Season with salt and pepper. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and chill.)

Stir honey and vinegar in small saucepan to blend. Add walnuts and boil until sauce is thick and syrupy, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes. Cool slightly. Season with salt.

Rewarm potato-carrot mixture over medium heat, stirring frequently. Transfer to bowl, spoon walnuts with syrup over, and serve.

Bebe! Squash, olive oil, seasoning (I like salt pepper and cayenne), mix well in a bowl, bake at 350 for 30 minutes or so.

Alternately. And this is odd, but really good...
Do what I said above, then scramble a bunch of eggs, and cook some veggies in a pan (shrooms, peppers, spinach) add eggs and squash. Stir until eggs are cooked. Feel free to add bacon or sausage as needed.

I have to try ChrisP's Hawian Rolls on a Sunday. I love the ones they sell at the store. I made the mistake of making crescent rolls from scratch one year on Thanksgiving day and it took forever and made me run late on everything else --- and they tasted exactly like the Pillsbury ones in the tube. The only thing I buy pre-made are the rolls.

60 bebe - I have made that squash recipe with just the butter and maple syrup, no cream. It works fine.

I also like to roast butternut or acorn squash, tossed in some olive oil and sprinkled with some chopped fresh sage and a little kosher salt. Very good. You could also throw in some toasted pecan halves.

Posted by: rockmom at November 26, 2013 10:35 PM (vE1mx)

61 Easy butternut (or acorn works too) squash recipe:

Halve the squash. Scoop out the innards and carve a channel in the non-hollow part of the butternut squash. Lay a couple of sprigs of fresh rosemary in the hollowed areas. Dab with butter. Wrap very well with tin foil. Roast on grill or in oven.

I rarely bother with sweetener, but a dab of brown sugar is good, of course.

Posted by: Y-not at November 26, 2013 10:36 PM (zDsvJ)

62 Y-not, I found the cranberry English muffins at BJ's. Got a giant 18-pack of them and they will probably be gone by the end of this weekend! So good toasted with some cream cheese and a little orange marmalade.

Posted by: rockmom at November 26, 2013 10:36 PM (vE1mx)

63 Oh, and roasting time is based on when the squash feels soft when you squeeze it. Maybe 45 minutes, but really depends on if you're using the grill or oven.

95 My cranberry recipe...

Sherry's Strawberry Cranberry Relish

1 (16 oz) container of frozen sliced strawberries -- slightly, but not completely thawed
1 package (12 oz) raw cranberries
2 packages (3 oz) strawberry Jell-O
½ cup pecan pieces
½ cup thawed orange juice concentrate
1 ½ cups of sugar
1 cup water

Boil the water and pour it over the strawberry Jell-O and sugar in a bowl large enough to contain all the ingredients. Stir until the gelatin and sugar are dissolved.

Stir in the orange juice concentrate and the nuts.

Chop the cranberries in a food processor. I add the SLUSHY strawberries a big spoonful at time along with the whole cranberries to help the processor chop the cranberries more evenly. Add the cranberry/strawberry mix to the other ingredients in the large bowl, stirring them into the other ingredients.

Chill for 4-6 hours before serving. It is better if it is allowed to chill overnight.

101 OK, a recipe from my childhood: Baked Rice.

1-2lbs of boneless chicken filets
1 can diced tomatos
2 cups chicken broth
2 cups white rice
1 onion
garlic to taste

Cut the chicken in small pieces and simmer in a pan at medium heat for 5-7 minutes. Add onions, garlic to taste and 1/2 cup broth, simmer until chicken is cooked through. Combine all items together in a casserole dish, using enough broth only until the mixture is a moist / nearly soupy condition. Bake at 350 for 1 hour or until top is golden brown.

117 Here's a recipe I plan to try out tomorrow:

Depending on your body weight, purchase 1-2 handles of the cheapest vodka on the shelves. If Val-u-rite is sold out, you may substitute by getting a few bottle of rubbing alcohol from the pharmacy. However in this case, you must remember to first filter through a loaf of bread (removes the poison).


It's best to start preparing early so you're all ready by the time dinner rolls around, so at 10am or so, pour one glass of straight alcohol and another of Sprite. Alternate drinking from each glass until you can substitute the Sprite glass with another of alcohol and not notice any difference. Continue in this manner until diner is served. When your idiot cousin starts spouting off about how great Obamacare is, you won't feel a thing when you punch his teeth down his throat.


If you fucked up and didn't drink all the booze first, no worries, you can use what's left as an effective disinfectant for your bloody knuckles!

152 Is it okay to say something political? Or will the fascist mgmt send some operative to sprinkle me with polonium?

Anyway.

Just thought I'd mention this: Everyone remembers Kennedy and his "Ich bin ein berliner" speech but no one seems to remember that the wall went up on his watch.

It went up in Aug 1961. It could've been torn down right then and there before they put concrete walls up. But Kennedy was gutless.

They could've protested the action (because that could've been considered contrary to the accords that divided the city. Free access from zone to zone.) But Kennedy was gutless

He faced a surprising situation and chickened out. (East Germany and Russia expected more trouble over it than they got to their surprise.) I think that's why Russia decided to become so much bolder over the next decade or so.

Kennedy blinked (again) and NO ONE NOTE THIS.

It would be as if they bombed the Trade Center and no one did anything about it. Like what Billy Jeff didn't.

Democrats hate war so much that they've caused or prolonged almost all of them because of their feckless displays of gutlessness in the face of aggression. Thus causing more aggression until they can't ignore it anymore.

So if the libs at your table tomorrow try to deflect from O'Care with stories of Camelot and Brave Sir John, point out to them that JFK was another feckless chicken shit Democrat (who having been a naval officer should've known better) who got us into almost all the trouble he supposedly got us out of.

155 Turnips! Good stuff. Try the Japanese variety. Small, white, and crisp-sweet.
http://is.gd/wygHNN

I grew these in the garden for the first time this year and just kept sowing rows over and over. They don't mind being crowded so you can grow a ton of them, they're ready from seed in just over a month, and they develop at slightly different rates so you can keep picking the same row over and over for a couple-three weeks.

They kind of push themselves out of the dirt and show you they're ready. The ground in the garden was frozen solid yesterday and I still managed to rock a few big ones out of their spots. I have a bucket full of these things on the covered porch and will be eating them over the next couple weeks.

And they're flippin' delicious. Best salad/slaw ever, and really nice fried to toastiness in a little olive oil, or baked with chicken and carrots.

And the greens are delicious lightly steamed and tossed with EVOO and garlic.

This is my best 'new' veggie find ever.

230 Apple/Butternut Squash:
1 peeled cubed butternut squash chunks
1 can apple pie filling
mix together, bake in oven (oh, say 350 degrees) for 40 minutes until squash is cooked. Can sprinkle with chopped pecans before baking. Or even top with your favorite streusel topping.

Sweet potato/Banana:
Mash cooked sweet potato innards (or canned-but drain the liquid) with couple of bananas. Add honey or maple syrup or agave syrup to taste. Bake 350 degrees 15-20 minutes. Can sprinkle with chopped pecans before baking.

I stick with a very traditional Thanksgiving Dinner, with homemade dried Italian bread and sausage dressing (my husband would kill me otherwise - he loves this stuffing), rutabaga, mashies, green veg of some sort, giblet gravy, etc, homemade cranberry sauce, and usually two pies, one Chocolate Pecan and one fruit (usually Apple made with MacIntosh's) or pumpkin.

The next few days up to a week of tackling the leftover turkey with simple recipes, one dish meals, and lower calories after a big dinner is next...

What to make with leftover turkey; some of the obvious ones:

- soups
- Turkey Pie/Pot Pie
- Turkey Chili
- Pierogis
- Turnovers
- Parmazzini/Tetrazzini
- Enchiladas/Burritos
- Sandwiches
- If you want to grind it up: Pate Maison, Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf, or Spinach Stuffed Meatloaf...

etc

Two that I enjoy - and, I found one online are:

1) Turkey Pie With Sage Cornmeal Pastry

(I have the actual cookbook that this was taken from, and there was one difference in the ingredients - my book calls for 1/3 C flour in the pie filling section vs 1/2 C listed online.)

http://www.epicureaders.com/recipe_0704_turkeypie.html

And, from the Williams-Sonoma Complete Outdoor Living Cookbook, I make:

2) Turkey-Vegetable Cobbler

(It's way too long to type out, but the Williams-Sonoma Recipes site has a Pot Pie that is "similar;" not as rich and complex, way less work, but, would be okay in a pinch. My recipe takes 4 Cups of Turkey, which is one of my best recipes for using up a lot in one recipe. My dough has some grated Parmesan cheese in it, which stands out, and it's also made with butter, cream and an egg... Too bad I couldn't find it online.)

Here's the link to the Pot Pie, and many other recipes they offer for Turkey. There are some other good recipes, there, for leftover turkey.

236 I don't have to cook anything this year, so the only thing I'm bringing is a box of Velveeta and a can of Rotels for the kids (my brothers will be partaking of it too I'm sure).. I love reading these recipes though. They are keepers.

Also bringing the Christmas Bushmaster for the kiddies to shoot. We're going to use those MAIG placemats for targets. You know, the ones that Bloomberg offers as a printout so that families can have that fun "gun safety" discussion at the thanksgiving table. BANG!

237 Easy Pan fried Bacon Brussel Sprouts

1 package bacon, cooked crisp and chopped, with all the drippings reserved

2-3 of the pint baskets of Brussel sprouts, trimmed, rinsed, and halved

3-4 cloves garlic, minced

Up to 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

Salt and pepper, to taste


In a large pan, heat the bacon drippings over medium-high heat. Sweat the garlic in the drippings for 30 seconds or so before adding in the sprouts. Fry the sprouts in the garlic and drippings, stirring frequently, and occasionally deglazing the pan with splashes of cider vinegar. Season to taste, add more vinegar if necessary, and throw in the chopped bacon. They are done when they are caramelized but NOT mushy.

241 btw Gabe, fresh cranberry sauce made on the stovetop is the usual, especially if the oven is roasting turkey.

Posted by: panzernashorn at November 27, 2013 12:25 PM (MhA4j)

242 Our turkey went in the oven half an hour ago. Thanks to the convection, it'll probably be done in 3 hrs.

Awesome day today. Mr Y-not has the day off. Started day with donuts (hey, if you're going to cheat on the diet - go all out!) and now River Monsters marathon is on.

I hope everyone has safe travels and/or nice visits with family and/or mellow, relaxing Thanksgiving celebrations.

243 78 There will be both turnips and parsnips. Does anybody in America still eat either
---

We like rutabagas, which are a milder form of turnip. Usually we simply mash them. I think they're consider pretty good for folks who are tracking glycemic indices. They taste great - nice and sweet - but smell stinky.

I want to like parsnips but the few times I've tried making them I was not impressed by the results. Seem like a woody carrot to me.


One root veg I really love, but rarely make because it's kind of a PITA to peel, are Jerusalem artichokes. Wish I knew a better way to peel them.

I roast them in combination with carrots. One basic recipe is to peel and cut up 1 lb carrots and 1/2 lb parsnips, the. Toss them with extra virgin olive oil, salt, and lemon pepper. Roast them until they're done. It's a nice combination, as the carrots get a little sweet and the roasting brings out a nice ginger-ish flavor in the parsnips.

248 Thanks, MandyP.

So I'm breaking my own rule and going to do something a little different this year. Mr Y-not requested squash as a side dish, but I feel like something different than my usual (roasted w/ rosemary), so I think I'll cube it and roast with bacon, pecans, and maple syrup.

Oh, and my friggin' baster decided to crack so I have to send the man out to buy a new one. Better him than me!

Posted by: Y-not at November 27, 2013 01:08 PM (zDsvJ)

Posted by: The Waitresses at November 27, 2013 02:04 PM (SUKHu)

251 OK here is my 'recipe' for brine for turkey. You decide whether its my scandi cheapness or my redneck nature. Look up brine recipe online. Pish on using $$ for a gallon of veg or chicken broth or sea salt. just use 1 gallon of water and add a little extra basic table salt, herbs and today a few green onions I pulled. As for what herbs to use: Well sage is always good with poultry, black peppercorns sounded good, parsley, thyme, I think I put in a bit of rosemary and I like a little garlic in just about anything. So 1 cup salt + a bit for water instead of broth, and I added a tablespoon of sugar cuz I think it may help the turkey absorb the brine. I'll add the turkey and gallon of ice water tonight.

Posted by: palerider at November 27, 2013 02:26 PM (dkExz)

252 I haven't had rutabagas, but parsnips are good cooked up just like mashed potatoes. Cut 'em into big chunks, boil until tender, then mash them with cream, butter and/or other goodies.

If you add in the cost of the shotgun, gas to the hunting place, the shotgun shells, and the time spent both in the woods and at the task of cleaning and butchering, there's no reason to discuss how much I paid for the venison, either.

Of course jalopolinos are always welcome in any dish, as seasoning is the soul of diversity. It is your okra and should have your chop to it, as GOD intended. But remember, friend, okra is often ruined by other than yankees. Know what I mean?

Bacon Chestnut stuffing
1 large loaf of white bread
1 cup melted butter
2 eggs
1 cup chopped chestnuts
1 lb bacon - fried crisp
1 large onion chopped
4 stalks celery chopped
2 cans turkey broth
Thyme to taste - sage to taste - plus 1 tbsp. poultry seasoning
salt and pepper

Tear bread into fine chunks - fry bacon - reserve fat. Saute onion and celery in bacon fat ( Well it's Thanksgiving no time for calorie counting). add cooked veggies to bread along with chestnuts, , butter, eggs, broth and spices. Mix well - crumble fried bacon and mix well again.

*** substitute oysters for chestnuts - I do this at Christmas. I also stuff my bird - have been for years - only way to make stuffing taste good. Brining the bird helps!
