Green Your Thanksgiving: DIY Sauce and Stuffing

Cranberry_sauce Just thinking about Thanksgiving dinner seems to expand the stomach. This week, we offer tips to help you green your feast.

Tip #2: Do it Yourself

Consider making your own cranberry sauce and stuffing instead of dumping a gelatinous canned mass onto your plate and filling your turkey with glorified croutons. Spruce up the conventional sauce with some Fuyu persimmons, a seasonal food, or keep it simple with a touch of orange zest. For stuffing, get day-old baguettes from a neighborhood bakery -- or use cornbread. Substitute vegetable broth to make this feast favorite vegetarian-friendly.
