Cranberry sauce is a fixture at Thanksgiving. Just the thought of drizzling cranberry sauce over a nice cut of turkey is enough to launch people into waves of nostalgic holiday bliss, dreaming about the sleepy fullness of the meal and the comfortable coziness of it all. But cranberries don't have to be limited to an oft-canned sauce! You can include cranberries in other parts of the meal too-and these are great ways to do it.
