In my family, on my Dad's side, we always have a side dish at Thanksgiving and Christmas that I like to call cranberry fluff. My Grandma calls it cranberry sauce, some call it cranberry salad, but it will forever be cranberry fluff to me. If you like the sweet tartness of cranberries, this is the dish for you. It is VERY simple, and is ALWAYS a hit in our family. And, now that my grandmother is older, it has been put onto me to bring the fluff every year.
Super simple recipe!
You star with just a few ingredients: whole cranberries, english walnuts (or so the recipe calls for, Ijust buy whatever), and evaporated milk. You will also need a little bit of sugar, and if you should so choose- red food coloring.
Then mix them all together...
Then, put your evaporated milk in your mixer, and mix until it's nice and fluffy. My grandma says until there are stiff peaks, but I usually end up over mixing, so I just get it as fluffy as possible.
Next, add in a few drips of red food coloring. My grandma also insists on this step. It doesn't look cranberry flavored unless it's red. It tastes the same either way, but you always listen to your grandma!
I let mine sit overnight, and it looks a lot redder if you let it sit. It is a super simple, yummy for Thanksgiving and Christmas treat! Go ahead and try it, and let me know how you like it!
