At my mom's in Las Vegas I came across two great recipes that sounded fantastic to prepare for the rest of the holiday festivities. I also found a good "re-purpose" recipe for cranberry sauce to make a meatball or egg roll dipping sauce. Yes, again Cranberries are the theme! I have some very impatient FB followers who would like these recipes so pictures will follow this weekend when I make them! Enjoy

Sweet and Sour Cranberry Dipping Sauce

Bring 1 pint of wholeberry cranberry sauce, 1/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar, 1/3 rice wine vinegar, 1/4 cup soy sauce, and 1 1/2 T. grated fresh ginger to a boil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook stirring ofter for 2 to 3 minutes or until cranberry sauce is melted and sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and cool completely, about 30 minutes. Makes 2 cups.
