Kaffir Lime and Honey Cranberry Sauce

A fresh take on Thanksgiving cranberry sauce. Citrus, like oranges, lemons, and limes, are at the peak of ripeness throughout the winter and add a bright, crisp flavor to the sauce. Kaffir limes are traditionally used in Southeast Asian cuisine; find them at Asian specialty markets fresh, frozen, or dried. Recipe courtesy of Jennie-O.

Lime Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
