Snackshot Of The Day: Cranberries

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot was taken during the cooking marathon that is Thanksgiving. Cranberry sauce is a holiday staple, and arguably the simplest dish of the meal to make. Typically made with cranberries, water, sugar, and lemon or orange zest, all brought to a boil, a little bit on the side of your plate makes all the difference. It's the sweet that complements the savory of just about everything else on the table.
