Cocktail Sauce #2
Cranberry Sauce

Pick over and wash 1 quart cranberries. Add 1 cup boiling water. Cover and boil about 10 minutes or until all berries are burst. Press through sieve. To the juice and pulp add 2 cups sugar and bring to boiling point, stirring so that sugar is dissolved. Let boil 3 or 4 min. Pour immediately into wet molds or glasses.

Note from Debbie: The hard part is pressing it through the sieve, but it’s worth it. This is more like Cranberry Jelly than Sauce. You can slice it.


Eggnog Sauce Beat egg yolks and sugar until thick and lemon-colored in top of double boiler; stir in flour, salt and the 2 tbsp. cream. Cook over simmering water, adding butter or margarine, 1 tablespoon at a time, stirring constantly, 10 minutes, or until butter melts and sauce thickens. Remove from heat; add brandy; cover; chill. To serve: Beat remaining cream until stiff in a small bowl; fold into chilled egg mixture.

To prepare in blender: Place corn syrup, sugar, lemon juice and strawberries in blender and blend until smooth.

Note from Debbie: We ended up always using this to baste rotisseried chicken. It is the best!
