Cranberries Jezebel November 27, 2007

Posted by Retired Geezer in Food, Religion, Science.
trackback

Flyin’ Brian and his wife, Stephanie, came up to Camp Geezer for Thanksgiving. Steph is a good cook and brought most of the food for the meal. Brian deep-fried the turkey, out in the front yard, and all we had to do was make the Cranberry Sauce.

I asked Cathy if she had a good recipe. She did. Cranberries Jezebel.

We decided to make regular cranberry sauce also, to give people a choice.

As I was cooking the CJ, various people would say things like “Horseradish! … Mustard! In Cranberry Sauce?”.

I submit for your evaluation, two bowls of cranberry sauce, on my non-Granite countertop, 3 days after Thanksgiving.

Notice the difference between Cathy’s Cranberries Jezebel on the left (which I made) and Mrs. Geezer’s homemade cranberry recipe on the right (which was very good in its own sweet way). Most everybody ate the CJ and left the regular stuff.

It was great. Oh BTW, Mrs. Geezer asked me if I could add the magic ingredients to *her* sauce to fix it up.

If it’s OK with Cathy, I’ll post the recipe here.

RECIPE BELOW THE BREAK

Cranberries Jezebel

Combine in a saucepan until dissolved and bring to a boil:

1 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar

Add to boiling water:

1 bag (12 ounces) fresh cranberries.

Return water to a boil, and cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Spoon into a bowl and cool to room temperature.

Stir in:

3 tablespoons prepared horseradish
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

Refrigerate until ready to serve.

*resisting gag reflex*

Jezebel was one troublemaking harlot, so I’ll try anything with her namesake.

I’m also a huge fan of hotdogs, and lord knows what’s in those.

2. Jezebel - November 27, 2007

HATER!

3. Amish Defenestration - November 27, 2007

Im sure if you have any leftovers, your dogs will be very happy.

4. Farmer Joe - November 27, 2007

See, OK. I realize this makes me a phillistine, but on Thanksgiving, I want Ocean Spray cranberry sauce from a can. And I want it extracted from the can whole, so that it retains the shape of the can, complete with the little ridges. Slicing it is acceptable, so long as the slices are left in situ so that the shape of the can can be seen.

Since I have vowed to be a nice guy today, KC I will not post the 3 or 4 nasty comments I had in mind at your expense

6. Mr Minority - November 27, 2007

I love cranberries! I love horseradish!

But I am sorry mixing the two together just doesn’t sound right to me.

And KC is right, Jezebel was a two-time scheming whore, so naming something after her isn’t right either (unless it is a sex toy or lube).

7. kevlarchick - November 27, 2007

Mr M, will you be at the IB shootin contest in Feb?

8. Mr Minority - November 27, 2007

Mr M, will you be at the IB shootin contest in Feb?

KC, unfortunately I can’t make it. And I know much you were looking forward to shooting against me in the back.

9. Jezebel - November 27, 2007

where’s the love?

10. lauraw - November 27, 2007

Actually that sounds like a good recipe.

Kind of like cocktail sauce but sweeter and not tomato-ey?

11. Retired Geezer - November 27, 2007

Let me just say that everybody that said “Ewwwwww” when I was making it, became a believer after they tried it.

I also like the jellied stuff from the can, just like Farmer Joe, and I concur with keeping the ridges.

12. lauraw - November 27, 2007

Tangy and hot go together good. I’d try it.

If you would post the recipe…

13. See-dub - November 27, 2007

Amish, that was hilarious.

For you infidels: http://nasb.scripturetext.com/2_kings/9.htm

(skip down to verse 30.)

14. Retired Geezer - November 27, 2007

If you would post the recipe…

I will if Cathy says it’s OK.

15. mesablue - November 27, 2007

Jehu shot a bunch of guys.

They should make a movie.

16. Michael - November 27, 2007

I was skeptical at first also, but it’s great stuff. It works well as a condiment right on your turkey.

17. Cathy - November 27, 2007

Sure, post the recipe!

18. Cathy - November 27, 2007

Jezebel was a two-time scheming whore, so naming something after her isn’t right either (unless it is a sex toy or lube).

Jeezabel, Mr. Min.
You said you like cranberries and horseradish.
Why not make the friggin stuff and try it first.

Then you can decide whether to eat it,
or use it as a sex toy or lube.

19. Dave in Texas - November 27, 2007

It works well as a condiment right on your turkey.

I have used a condiment on my turkey since college.

20. Michael - November 27, 2007

Dave, I thought you fixed your turkey so that a condiment was not necessary.

21. Mr Minority - November 27, 2007

Then you can decide whether to eat it,
or use it as a sex toy or lube.

Jezebel would do both.

22. Cathy - November 27, 2007

I have used a condiment on my turkey since college.

Does it taste good?

23. Mr Minority - November 27, 2007

Dave, I thought you fixed your turkey so that a condiment was not necessary.

With the hens that Dave tries to cluck, he needs a condiment so he doesn’t catch the bird flu.

</i.

Damn, damn, damn! i have a bad habit of not holding down the shift key long enough!

25. Dave in Texas - November 27, 2007

Try using both hands.

26. Mr Minority - November 27, 2007

Try using both hands.

I have to for a lot of things.

27. Michael - November 27, 2007

I fixed your comments for you, Mr. M.

28. Michael - November 27, 2007

I have to for a lot of things.

Like wiping the drool off your chin?

29. Mr Minority - November 27, 2007

I fixed your comments for you, Mr. M.

You da man! I don’t care if Dave thinks you are a clarinet playing pussy or Geoff thinks you are a sub-human moron mouth breather.

You are OK in my book (for a dude that that dresses up in tights and has funny ears).

Just be who you are Michael (Ron Paul needs someone to look better than).

(thank you fixing the italic tags earlier)

Geoff thinks you are a sub-human moron mouth breather.

Actually I thought he was anaerobic.

32. Mr Minority - November 27, 2007

Actually I thought he was anaerobic.

Hey, I just said he was a sub-human moron mouth breather, not a shit-eating bacteria.

33. Cathy - November 27, 2007

I’m working on a home made turkey pot pie for supper using some of our turkey leftovers. I’ll be serving Cranberries Jezebel with it.

I love pie.

34. Mr Minority - November 27, 2007

I’ll be serving Cranberries Jezebel with it.

You know, I would actually have to have someone else make it and I try it before I became a believer in it.

35. bkclubcare - November 27, 2007

HEY!!!!! but WHERE is the recipe already!?

36. daveintexas - November 27, 2007

well who doesn’t love pie?

37. Michael - November 27, 2007

Apparently Geezer is AWOL. I’ll get Cathy to send me the recipe. Stand by . . .

38. Retired Geezer - November 27, 2007

Just got back, thanks for posting it.
I admit I was skeptical at first. That’s why we made both kinds of sauce.

Well two out of three if you count the jellied CB sauce in a can which I also like.

39. dr4 - November 27, 2007

Im addicted.

Cranberry Jezebel:

40. Mr Minority - November 27, 2007

Cranberry Jezebel

So that’s what KC looks like, I thought her horns would be shorter.

41. Mr Minority - November 27, 2007

Okay, Okay, I lied when I said I was in a nice guy mood today. It’s just today was the first day I felt better, I have had the intestinal flu since Saturday, and today was the first day that my food didn’t come out in a liquid form, 20 mins after I ate it.

42. mesablue - November 27, 2007

A nice bowl of Cranberry Jezebel could be just the ticket for that — or not.

43. dr4 - November 27, 2007

some dude at hotair linked this. George Clooney is a dick.

Fabio and Clooney almost got in a fight:

http://www.upi.com/NewsTrack/Entertainment/2007/11/07/fabio_clooney_lock_horns_in_restaurant/4503/

Clooney was flipping off one of th 5(!) women sitting with Fabio because he thought she was taking pictures of him.

Fabio’s manager, Eric Ashenberg, said, “Clooney started on ‘ER’ and Fabio was going to send him back there.”

44. Mrs. Peel - November 27, 2007

Mr. M, TMI. Glad you’re feeling better though.

Orange cranberry tropicana twister juice is the best. Unfortunately, stores don’t seem to carry it anymore. You can approximate the taste by mixing orange juice and cranberry juice, but it’s not quite the same.

Do you guys remember that season of The Bachelorette where the chicken had to choose between a cute, sweet nerd and some doofus construction worker? She picked the construction worker, and then revealed her horrible secret: she used to date Fabio! The construction worker totally dumped her. It was hilarious.

(and no, I don’t watch reality TV. I was rooming with my cousin that semester, and she loves that stuff.)

45. mesablue - November 27, 2007

but it’s not quite the same

Add about a pound of sugar.

46. amish will break you - November 27, 2007

The Bachelorette where the chicken had to choose between a cute, sweet nerd and some doofus construction worker?

wait – these programs are showcasing bestiality now? Well, i guess it was the next step after Brigitte Nielsens exploits on Flavor of Love.

47. Mrs. Peel - November 27, 2007

oops! I guess I should concentrate on either studying or commenting, not both…

48. Gonzo - November 27, 2007

dont worry. I have the same problem. Cant get those lovely honeys off my mind.

49. frodo441 - November 27, 2007

just testify in church and thank God for a heart of flesh…and try that Texas Jesebel.

50. Bart - November 27, 2007

So cranberries are some form of chili, yes?

51. mesablue - November 27, 2007

Dingleberries?

52. Bart - November 27, 2007

Jingleberries?

53. Mr Minority - November 27, 2007

Dangleberries?
