The Great Cran­berry Sauce De­bate

Chattanooga Times Free Press - Parade - - ADVERTISEMENT -

When it comes to cran­ber­ries on your Thanks­giv­ing ta­ble, do you love the “log” or pre­fer whole-berry sauce? Ei­ther way, cran­berry sauce has a place of honor on 60 per­cent of Amer­i­can ta­bles, and many fam­i­lies serve both styles to keep ev­ery­one happy.

So which is our true fa­vorite?

Ac­cord­ing to Ocean Spray’s lat­est consumer re­search, 76 per­cent of us opt for store­bought sauce, and most who do like the jel­lied va­ri­ety served up in the shape of the can. More than half of us even serve it sliced along the ridges! Some re­search sug­gests South­ern­ers are 50 per­cent more likely than other Amer­i­cans to choose canned cran­berry sauce.

When it comes to styles of cran­berry sauce, the recipe site Daily Meal re­ports that North­east­ern­ers fa­vor cran­berry rel­ish (made with un­cooked berries) while West­ern­ers like a cooked sauce (and South­west­ern cooks will spice things up with chipo­tle chile).
