    Default Great Christmas Dinner at Brittania

    Found new favorite holiday Turkey lunch/dinner destination.
    Today, Christmas Day had their turkey dinner with gravy with fresh cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, carrot, broccoli, dinner rolls and stuffing with fresh red pepper.
    Their chef has been there a long time and is wonderful and the staff and Ryan are great.
    Highly recommend!

    I never realized you can get fresh cranberries here. That's gotta be pretty tart!

    My mother always made fresh cranberry sauce. She boiled cranberries with orange juice and some sugar added to the water, orange zest, and sometimes added a bit of chopped fresh orange. The cranberries pop when done, it’s similar to a smooth relish.

    I’m wondering if Dominican cranberries are different?? Cranberries are grown in bogs in USA. And long vines rather than a tree....

    Very healthy

    I’ve never seen those. Interesting! Cranberries here are a little larger than a guandule, no pit, and very shiny smooth skin.
