Cranberry Orange Chutney
- 12 oz fresh cranberries
- 2-3 oranges, peeled and seeds removed
- 1/2 cup sugar (add more as needed)
- Place orange pulp and cranberries in food processor and chop until desired consistency. Chutney is usually chunky, but you can make it smoother if you like.
- Pour fruit into a bowl and add sugar. Stir well to completely combine.
Another of my favorite recipes for kids at Thanksgiving is the Thanksgiving Blessing Mix by OrganizedChristmas.com This makes a great classroom activity and looks cute baggged as a gift with a tag telling what the foods represent…
THANKSGIVING BLESSINGS MIX
Bugles- cornucopia/horn of plenty- a symbol of abundance
Pumpkin Seeds (pepitas)- symbol of future harvests
Dried fruits- cranberries and raisins- harvest gifts enjoyed from the land
Candy Corn- symbol of settlers’ survival on just a few kernels of corn each day when food was scarce
M&M’s- memories of those before us
Pretzels- symbol of arms folded in prayer- which was a freedom sought by the founders of our country
Hershey’s Kiss- one per person- symbol of love and sweetness of family and friends
This last recipe is one that I made with my children and they loved it so much that I wanted to share…
The ingredients are simple-
Pepperidge Farm Milano Cookies
Jumbo Marshmallows (cut horizontally with kitchen scissors to make turkey feathers)
Melting Chocolates, Sprinkles, Butterscotch Chips, Orange Edible Ink Pen for feet
To make the Turkey Cookies-
Melt 3/4 cup melting chocolates and dip marshmallow “feathers” in melted chocolate.
Attach to back of Milano cookie right away. Shake on sprinkles. Place on wax paper to dry.
Add butterscotch chips for eyes using a dab of icing. Draw beak by dipping toothpick in melted chocolate and using toothpick as a pencil. Draw feet with orange edible writing pen.
So easy! Enjoy!
