    Homemade dinner rolls
    Cranberry sauce...have to figure out how to give it some oomph

    8 people, lots of leftovers.
    Bacon wrapped stuffing? Somewhere, your great uncle Schlomo is crying. I’m drooling (duck fat potatoes are arguably the greatest thing you can do to a potato, and I haven’t had a good confit in a long time) but your ancestral shtetl are very distressed.

    Let’s have a little think about this sauce...are you making it yourself (and if so, what’s the recipe) or is cranberry sauce out of a can a necessary thing for you even when you know how? I know for some people the canned stuff just is how it’s meant to be.

    If you can tell me about the base sauce you’re using, I’m sure between us we can find a way to tweak it.

    Boil crsaberrys, vanilla. Orange peel, sugar, maybe a touch of bourbon.
    And I have been known to use an empty can as a mold. Love those ridges.

    Seriouseats. Com confirm soud vide. Good stuff

    You know what I don’t see in that cranberry sauce?

    Cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger.

    I’ll leave quantity and proportion up to you, but they work with the tartness of the cranberries, they work with citrus and you need something with a bit of heat and kick behind it to balance out the sugar and vanilla.

    It should pair with the smoked duck (all three spices work well with black tea and honey...ginger is one of the cornerstones of masala chai) as well.
