Nov 2016 Visiting Teaching Cards and Raspberry Sauce Recipe!

I confess, I *love* visiting teaching during the General Conference months! Such a great selections to share with the women I know and love, and the spirit of this past general conference was especially beautiful and loving for me.  The printable visiting teaching card and recipe is here: vt-message-11-2016. Just print (front and back) on card-stock, and deliver or add an address and stamp and post to the women you visit teach.

 

raspberry-sauceI love cranberry sauce! But for my family, the taste is generally to tart for them- especially the kids. Plus, it can be very hard to find fresh or frozen cranberries in Australia. So I created this recipe to put smiles on the faces of all who taste it! (For those who love cranberry, but not typical cranberry sauce, see below the Raspberry Sauce recipe for a cranberry version of this recipe!)

 

Holiday Raspberry Sauce 

1 to 2 mandarins

1 cup sugar

4 cups fresh or frozen raspberries

 

Squeeze the juice of the mandarins into a measuring cup. Add enough water to make 1 cup of liquid. Put the mandarin juice and water in a saucepan with the sugar. Bring to a boil and stir until thickened. Remove from heat and stir in raspberries (no need to thaw). Cool overnight in the refrigerator, and serve on the side of ham or turkey! Easy!

 

Still want some cranberry in your holiday sauce? No problem! (This is MY preferred sauce, when I can find fresh cranberries)
