So it's one of those times around the year when you get to meet your friends/family, you get a lot of gifts, and you get to eat and cook your favourite dishes.

So which dish(es) you hope someone cooks/gets for you? And which special dishes are you cooking this season? What ingredients are you going to be experimenting with this season?

My eating wishlist --

Cheesy stuffed mushrooms cooked by one of my cousins, cheesy asparagus sticks with garlic and pepper dip ... ( there are many in my list )...

I have my cousins over at home and it has been a kitchen day at home today. Cooking, eating, playing this game of monopoly that we started today but that will go on till ... ( no idea till when ).. then eating again, cooking, eating, ....

You have better associations with Thanksgiving than I do. I'm just happy if I'm not socially obligated to ingest overcooked string beans mixed with Campbell's cream of chicken soup, Jell-o with bits of celery, pineapple, and marshmallows suspended in it, or that bastardization of wine known as Cold Duck. Yes, my family does have its roots in the Midwest. How did you know?

Ooh, that's sounds a little bitter, doesn't it? OK, I admit I'm looking forward to the roast turkey, yams, and stuffing.

Not that it matters much, but we don't celebrate 'Thanksgiving' as such in India. So I have no association with Thanksgiving.

It's just that time around the year when people are back home..

Wow, that's indeed a great menu.

Awesome. And more so cause there are so many interesting vegetarian ( Cranberry-walnut conserve in particular - wonder how you cook that one - but I'm guessing it'll be an interesting combination because of the contrast - cranberry and walnut - very creative... ) dishes in that list.

Actually it seems cranberry and walnut is already quite a popular combination. I found a recipe here.
But we don't get cranberries very easily here in bangalore. Next time I see them in the stores here, I'm gonna pick them for the 'experiment'. :-)

Hey Chan, here's the recipe for the cranberry relish:

BEAR'S CRANBERRY RELISH

12 oz fresh cranberries
1 1/2 c (10.5 oz) sugar
1/4 c honey
1 c water
1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored and chopped
1 orange, zested and juiced
1 lemon, zested and juiced
5 oz raisins
2 oz pecans or walnuts

1. Put water, cranberries, honey and sugar in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low.

2. Cook for about 5 minutes, until skins start popping.

3. Add the chopped apples, citrus zests, and citrus juices. Simmer over medium low heat for about 15 minutes.

4. Add raisins and nuts, and remove from the heat.

5. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, and preferably overnight or longer.

6. Can be preserved using the water bath canning technique. Process jars for 15 minutes.

It is simple. Go for it. And it's really good. A great combination of contrasting flavors (tart, sweet, earthy) and textures (smooth, chewy, crunchy).

Thanks for the recipe, Bear. And yeah, it does look quite simple to cook. I'm going to be looking for cranberries in the stores here. I think Cranberry fruit isn't grown in India ( not sure about the hill stations in the country though ) . Mostly what we get here ( at least in bangalore ) are the imported ones, but they're quite fresh ( or may be I don't know cause I haven't eaten/cooked the fresh american cranberries ever ).

This would also work fine with frozen cranberries if that's what's available.

Oh that's cool. Cause it's relatively easier to get the frozen ones. Thanks.
