Cranberry Sauce with Horseradish and Sour Cream


This recipe is one of those happy accidents of place and time. A couple of Thanksgivings ago, trying to gussie up a bland, store-bought cranberry sauce, I added horseradish, onion, and sour cream. The result? Fantastic! It’s even better if you start with homemade sauce and end with pecans. And, yes, you do include the orange peel. SAM

1 medium orange, quartered and seeded but not peeled
12 ounces fresh cranberries
1/2 cup sugar
6 ounces prepared horseradish
1 tablespoon finely minced onion
3 tablespoons sour cream
1/4 cup coarsely chopped pecans

In a food processor fitted with the metal blade, pulse the orange, cranberries, and sugar until coarsely ground. Remove the blade and stir in the horseradish, onion, sour cream, and pecans.
Makes 8 to 10 servings.

    I am not aware of any particular website as such Emily but there are some fabulous events that happen around the world. It’s an adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s The Selfish Giant – I wrote the script though since we worked with kids who are mostly between 7 – 9 years old we gave them freedom to modify and add. I’ll post pics after the event. Here’a an article in The Hindu (newspaper) on our rehearsals –
