Cranberry Sauce Still Lurking In The Fridge?

Cranberry SauceWhat should we do with our leftover Cranberry Sauce from Thanksgiving dinner?  You know, the stuff that we always make way too much of?  Is it still sitting in a bowl in your refrigerator? 

Let us know how you re-purpose your Cranberry Sauce… and we have a couple other ideas for you in addition to the uses that everyone thinks about, which are using it as a sandwich spread or on toast.

idea #1 – Heat, strain and create a craft cocktail syrup out of it.  (see recipe below)

Idea #2 – Turn those tangy cranberry sauce leftovers into a Cranberry Pie.

Idea #3 – Make Cranberry Muffins or Bread.

Idea #4 – Add the sauce to Grilled Cheese Sandwiches or Chicken Quesadillas.

Heat your chunky cranberry sauce leftovers along with a bit of water, then fine-strain it. Use your new ‘cranberry cocktail syrup’ in this colorful drink:
