These are perfect for when you become an empty nester and the kids are to far away, or a perfect holiday basket of goodies for that shut-in neighbor of yours, or when you are just starting out and are on your own for the holidays. Each dish is made with 1/2 a (12 oz)bag of cranberries and 1/2 of a small can crushed pineapple

    NOTE: wash and check each cranberry for firmness and spoilage before starting these recipes. Total time for both recipes takes about 20 minutes plus the chopping from 4 hours earlier. And the best part it is completed the night before so there is less to think of the day of Thanksgiving or Christmas
