Every single year I look forward to holiday cooking.

To me, preparing meals for holiday events seems much more meaningful than cooking the rest of the year.

I think of my mom buzzing around the kitchen, always so calm no matter how many people were crowded at her table. I think of my in-laws up north, nestled in toasty houses with snow on their window sills.

The rustic and vibrant flavors of the cool months stir up warm memories of past celebrations. Apples, pumpkin, butternut squash, brussels sprouts, cranberries and raspberries… all these fresh ingredients create anticipation of upcoming events and new memories to be made.

Holiday recipes are special because they are made with love. We take the time to add little touches we know our friends and family will enjoy.

Like decorating cakes with fresh raspberries, using fruit and nuts in vegetable dishes to make them shine, or adding fresh raspberries to the Thanksgiving cranberry sauce.

As part of Driscoll’s Made with Love campaign this season, I made this recipe with love for my family, and I know your family will feel just as loved when you make it for them!

I’m a fan of any kind of cranberry sauce, but this raspberry-cranberry sauce is a family favorite.

My kids are crazy for fresh berries, so this raspberry-heavy sauce is right up their alley.

I combined fresh cranberries, fresh Driscoll’s raspberries, ginger, and mint in a sauce pot with some sugar and a heavy dose of raspberry liqueur. The raspberry liqueur adds depth to the raspberry-cranberry sauce and accentuates the natural berry flavors in the fruit.

Once the sauce has simmered for a few minutes to burst all the berries, it can be served warm or cold, as a Thanksgiving side dish, as a compote to serve with cheese, or on desserts.

One of my favorite ways to enjoy it is on some slices of fresh baguette with a smear of soft goat cheese. Mmmmmm.

I could make a whole meal out of that.
