Cranberry Pineapple Sauce


Cranberry Pineapple Sauce
Makes 6 cups

  • 1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple in juice
  • 2 (12 ounce) packages cranberries (fresh or frozen, preferably fresh)
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar 
  • 1 1/4 cups walnuts, chopped (optional- I did not use)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon clove

1. Drain the pineapple thoroughly in a fine sieve set over a large measuring cup (push the pineapple against the sieve to drain out any extra juice). Add enough water to the measuring cup (with the juice in it) to make 2 cups liquid.

2. Place the liquid in a saucepan. Add in cranberries and sugar. Stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves and the mixture comes to a boil. Continue to boil until most of the berries pop (you might want to keep a splatter screen or a lid over until the berries are finished popping) and the mixture is thick, stirring occasionally (about 10 minutes) remove from heat.

3. Add in drained pineapple, walnuts, lemon juice and cloves; mix until well combined.

4. Transfer to a bowl and cool to room temperature. Cover and refrigerate for 24 hours.

Stick of Butter Rice

This delicious side dish was a hit at my house. The raving over this recipe was intense. To put it mildly, everyone loved it.


Personally, I felt that the amount of butter could be cut down a bit in this recipe. I'll leave that up to you guys to decide what you think is best. I think I would go with 1/3 cup and see how that goes next time around. If you have unsalted butter I'd also recommend that you go with that, instead of the standard salted butter. Between the condensed soup and broth, it can get a bit salty.

Note that for this recipe you want to use standard white rice, not instant rice. Enjoy!

American Flag Strawberry Poke Cake

Get ready for an insanely delicious and patriotic dessert, an American Flag Strawberry Poke Cake. This is a fun one to have the kiddos help decorate. We've made this cake for a few forth of July celebrations now and it is always a huge hit.

An alternative and even simpler way of making this cake would be to use raspberries instead of the strawberries for the decoration on top. You could even use raspberry Jell-o as well. Enjoy!
