Talking Turkey, Part 3

It doesn't get any simpler than this. I haven't figured out yet how to make it come out in the shape of a can.


1 lb raw cranberries
3 whole seedless oranges, unpeeled
½ cup granulated sugar

In the bowl of a food processor coarsely grind the cranberries and oranges.

Sweeten to taste with granulated sugar. Serves 8.

And for the finale...

(Makes one 9-inch pie)

3 cups peeled and cubed sweet potatoes
1 cup evaporated milk
3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
5 egg yolks
Kosher salt
1 deep dish, 9-inch frozen pie shell

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Place sweet potatoes in a medium saucepan with cold water to cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until sweet potatoes are fork tender. Drain potatoes and mash with a potato masher and set aside to cool.

Place cooled sweet potatoes in a mixing bowl and beat with stand mixer or hand mixer until smooth. Add evaporated milk, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and egg yolks and beat until well combined. Add lemon juice, vanilla extract, and salt, to taste, and beat until well combined.

Pour batter into pie shell and bake for 50 to 55 minutes or until the pie filling reaches a temperature of 180 degrees F.

Remove from oven and cool. Keep pie refrigerated after cooling.
