Sounds good, but I’m not quite getting the directions. Do you put the sweet potato mixture into a casserole dish, then place the casserole dish inside the slow cooker?

Thanks, sharbam. I might try it. Tried a new recipe for sweet potato spoonbread a couple of days ago and it disappointed. Was hunting for a new sweet potato idea!!

Sounds good.

Whatever you do, dump the canned sauce for your Thanksgiving dinner!

Why do people buy that awful cranberry sauce in the cans? It’s so easy to make it from scratch- and as for taste, there’s is just no comparison.
FRESH CRANBERRY SAUCE

1 c. water 1 c. granulated sugar 3 c. Ocean Spray fresh or frozen cranberries

In a saucepan, combine water and sugar, stirring to dissolve sugar. Bring to boil; add cranberries, reduce heat to medium low. Cook until skins pop. To gel sauce, cool completely at room temperature, refrigerate until firm. Makes 2 1/4 cups.

No need to add anything to this recipe. It’s absolutely delicious with just the berries and sugar. Once you taste this, you’ll know what cranberry sauce tastes like, and you’ll never go back to that awful greyish glop in the cans again!

PS:

This makes a beautiful addition to your holiday table. The red cranberries are absolutely beautiful. Just put them in a festive, clear bowl. I save some of the whole cooked cranberries to adorn the top of the sauce.

As I said, don’t add anything to this recipe. Anything other than the berries just takes away from their wonderful taste.

Add crushed pineapple.

Nope. Takes away from the natural deliciousness of pure cranberries.

That’s just a little to much bourbon for me.

mostly its the time thing....you have everything cooking and its hard to cook any thing extra...but I know what you mean....very easy to make...might even add a pinch of cinamon and some orange pulp....

whole cranberry sauce is WONDERFUL in a home made fruit salad....its a good way to finish up your cranberry sauce after Thanksgiving...

does anybody have any opinion on supermarket turkeys as far as to which one is better?....not open range/organic etc...just plain old turkey...

I have access to Safeway brand, Jenny O, Norbest,Fred Meyer brands, Butterball....

Toikey’s pretty much toikey.....the only reason Butterball commands a premium is due to “injections”.

We always make the cranberry sauce a day or two before. If you try to make it on Thanksgiving, it may not have time to chill and jell.

I can't understand why people are compelled to add something..pineapple, oranges, spices. It only masks the delicious flavor of the cranberries.

There's nothing more delicious than pure fresh cranberry sauce. All you need to add is sugar and water. Simple instructions on the bag. :)

I have been eating Butterball turkey most of my life.

But, as pointed out, turkey is turkey. If you can prep it yourself (Injecting/slipping butter under the skin) then go for the cheapest per pound.

You know who I feel sorry for this week?
Vegetarians.

Would you rather eat this?

Or this...
On Thanksgiving Day?

You mix everything in a bowl and then pour into the slow cooker. Grease the slow cooker or use a slow cooker liner which is what I do. After pouring in the potato mix, top it with the nut and brown sugar mix. It really is terrific.
