Thanksgiving is coming up and I’m not sure the holiday dinner table is complete without some sort of cranberry dish! Yes, cranberries are the fruit of Thanksgiving. The great thing about this versatile fruit is that you just don’t have to serve it by itself as just the standard “cranberry side dish”. Nope, there are tons of ways to include cranberries in your Thanksgiving meal (including dessert!) and here are 15 of our favorites.
Sure, you can grab a can of “cranberries” but do you really want to when you can whip up homemade cranberry sauce in about 15 minutes. Mom on a Timeout has a fantastic recipe for you that will make you forget about the canned option!

More than likely, you are going to have some leftover turkey after the holiday! It’s the one meal that people don’t mind eating leftovers from for days afterwards.
