A staple for Thanksgiving dinner is cranberry sauce, no matter what you are serving this is a must and goes with everything. It is important to find the right sweet to sour balance to get the perfect sauce. The orange juice adds a great tang undertone and really makes the sauce what it is. The consistency should be similar to jam.
Adding a small amount of cannabutter will give your cranberry sauce pizzazz. Make sure if you use a cannabis infused oil, to do something with a neutral taste like coconut or walnut oil. Olive oil and other strong flavored oils will change the taste of your sauce.
