Hot Cranberry Tea
Cranberries are not just a side dish during Thanksgiving, they make wonderful additions to a number of foods and drinks, including this cranberry tea.
- 3 ½ quarts of water
- 12 oz of fresh cranberries
- 2 cups of sugar
- 2 oranges, juiced
- 2 lemons, juiced
- 12 whole cloves
- 2 sticks of cinnamon
In a large pot, heat water with cranberries. Once the water begins to boil, reduce the heat and allow the cranberries to simmer for 30 minutes. Then, add the remaining ingredients and allow the tea to steep for an hour. Serve warm.
A warm desert can brighten even the most dreary fall day. Baked pear can be served as desert or as a side dish to complement a meal.
- 4 Bosch pears
- 2 tbl of honey
- 3 tbl of melted butter
- A pinch of ground ginger
- ½ tsp lavender flowers
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Then, peel and core the pears. Cut the bottom of each pear so that each pear is able to stand on its own. Place the pears on a shallow baking sheet then, drizzle melted butter and honey over them. Finally, sprinkle on the ginger and lavender flowers. Cover with foil and bake for one hour. The pears should be basted with their own juices throughout the cook time.
