Scarborough Fair Cranberry Sauce


November 23, 2021

Taking a cue from the old English folk song popularized by Simon & Garfunkel, this savory sauce can be used as a glaze for your turkey, mixed with butter for the turkey, or just served as an alternative to the sweet stuff. The Parsley isn’t really needed, doesn’t bring a lot to the flavor party, but we needed it for the name to work right. You can make your own Garlic broth, or use any other broth but I tend to keep several of the Better than Bouillon bases around, including the roasted garlic, so I use it.
