SAUCE

Cranberry Sauce ala Alex

1 pound fresh cranberries, washed and dried
2 cups granulated sugar
1/3 cup water
1 cinnamon stick
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 orange, zested and juiced

In a medium pot, combine the cranberries, sugar and water. Stir to blend. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat. Reduce to a simmer and add the cinnamon stick, allspice and nutmeg.

Ina's Easy Basic Pesto

1/4 cup walnuts
1/4 cup pignolis (pine nuts)
3 tablespoons chopped garlic (9 cloves)
5 cups fresh basil leaves, packed
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups good olive oil
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan

Place the walnuts, pignolis, and garlic in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade. Process for 15 seconds. Add the basil leaves, salt, and pepper. With the processor running, slowly pour the olive oil into the bowl through the feed tube and process until the pesto is thoroughly pureed. Add the Parmesan and puree for a minute. Use right away or store the pesto in the refrigerator or freezer with a thin film of olive oil on top.

Notes: Air is the enemy of pesto. For freezing, pack it in containers with a film of oil or plastic wrap directly on top with the air pressed out.
To clean basil, remove the leaves, swirl them in a bowl of water, and then spin them very dry in a salad spinner. Store them in a closed plastic bag with a slightly damp paper towel. As long as the leaves are dry they will stay green for several days. Source: Barefoot Contessa

Chunky Applesauce

10 to 12 Granny Smith apples (about 5 1/2 pounds), cored and cut into eighths
1 cup water
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 cinnamon sticks
1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
Pinch salt
2 tablespoons sugar, or more, to taste

In a large saucepan or stockpot, combine all the ingredients, except the sugar. Cook over high heat until the apples begin to release their liquid, about 5 minutes. Cover and reduce the heat to medium, and cook until the apples soften and begin to break apart, about 1 hour, stirring frequently. Reduce the heat to low and partially cover. Cook until the apples fall apart and the mixture reaches sauce consistency, about 30 minutes.
Remove from the heat. Add the sugar (if needed) and stir well. Put the mixture through a food mill or a fine mesh strainer, pushing with the back of a spoon to extract as much sauce as possible. Discard the cinnamon sticks and apple skins.
Yield: 6 cups
