Friends, the time has come to discuss what is perhaps the most sacred of Thanksgiving sides: canned jellied cranberry sauce.
You know it. You love it. You've eaten a slab of it.
Every year, my poor mom would make orange-cranberry relish from scratch. And every year, all of her ungrateful children would devour the damn canned cranberry loaf thing instead.
Why did we/do we love that canned cran so much? Because it's the perfect sweet T-giving accoutrement — slippery and slidey in texture, a lovely counterpart to all of your savory side dishes.
Also, it comes in the perfect portioned container.
Canned cran is the secret sauce of Thanksgiving magic. BUT DON'T TAKE MY WORD FOR IT.
THERE ARE SO MANY OF US.
I mean, honestly, same:
Yes, canned cranberry is seriously better.Are you trippin? NO WAY. Real cranberry relish is better.Honestly, are you being paid by the pro-canned cranberry lobby or something?
