T.R.’s Homemade Cranberry Sauce #SundaySupper

The Sunday Supper bloggers are honoring  T.R. Crumbley, a fellow blogger and friend to many, who passed away this summer. We are making some of T.R.’s recipes or creating a gluten-free recipe of our own as T.R. was a gluten-free recipe creator.

While T.R.’s site is not up anymore, his recipes are archived in the WayBack Machine- something Sue Lau, of Palatable Pastime, reminded me of- she thinks just like a librarian! As it’s name implies, the WayBack Machine has a record of old and forgotten websites. As a librarian, I have used it a ton, to find old sites that just disappear. Sue, reminded us of the Wayback as a place to find T.R.’s recipes and I am so glad that I can honor him in this way and make a recipe directly from his own recipe collection. This is an exact copy by T.R.:

Homemade Cranberry Sauce

Not for the diabetic

You’ll need:
– 1 cup sugar
– 1 cup Orange Juice
– 16 oz organic cranberries
– 1/4 cup dry white wine
– whisk
– pot with lid
– potato masher

– Whisk together sugar and oj and bring to a boil on medium.
– Add cranberries and let boil until cranberries have popped
– Mash cranberries and add wine.
– Keep stirring for about 5, let stand to thicken and serve.

This is exactly how I did it, except I used non-organic cranberries. Just perfect. I love cranberry sauce – especially after Thanksgiving on my favorite sandwich, loaded with turkey and stuffing, and this yummy sauce- so good! This sauce is a 4-ingredient, 10 minute wonder…Thanks T.R.~

Here it is in my own words, and printable for you- worth making for sure!

“Knowing” someone only virtually, is a strange thing. I never got to meet T.R. face to face- but I chatted with him regularly…on Twitter in our Sunday Supper chats. Appropriately, this week is the last twiiter-chat for SundaySupper bloggers as we will no longer be chatting there on Sunday nights. The sun-downing of that social interaction, will hopefully bring new things to light, and hopefully T.R. would be honored by this. I am glad to have had the opportunity to “know” you a bit, T.R. Rest in peace~ For more recipes that honor T.R. and his gluten-free recipe legacy, check out the rest of the SundaySupper bloggers:

    What a wonderful tribute to a truly great guy! TR was one of a kind for sure. I love the little addition of wine in this recipe. I’ve never tried that in cranberry sauce, but I will this year! Thanks for sharing!!
