Kaffir Lime and Honey Cranberry Sauce


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.
