Thanksgiving is just around the corner (Yay! My favorite holiday!) so I wanted to share a few thanksgiving recipes from our archives that you can use this year to make the holiday even more delicious.
While folks are gathering for dinner, serve this refreshing Pear and Pomegranate Sangria. Not only does it look festive, but it also uses seasonal fruits that are readily available. And stay tuned to the blog this month, as I have a few more wine cocktail ideas coming up for you to consider.
Do you like to serve soup at Thanksgiving? I admit that we are not in that tradition ourselves, but I know several people do like to start out with something light. Our Butternut Squash soup is not only light, but healthy too!
What would Thanksgiving be without stuffing? Hearty and comforting, our Coup King turkey stuffing brings a tangy twist to this traditional dish.
Cranberry sauce made from scratch has been a tradition in our family since I can remember. Clyde often was served the canned variety, but he happily made the switch when we started making Thanksgiving dinner ourselves. This twist is made using our Huzzah Valley, which I’m currently out of, however, the Sweet River White would make a delicious substitution in the recipe.
If you’d like a colorful side dish outside of the normal mashed potatoes, try this recipe for an Autumn Vegetable Medley.
And of course I couldn’t forget about dessert. Our version of pumpkin pie uses Whittenburg wine, so we’ve affectionately renamed it, Whumpkin Pie. No matter what you call this pie, it’s delicious!
I hope one of these recipes makes it onto your dinner table this year. The tasting room is closed on Thanksgiving day, but we will be open on Friday. In fact throughout the weekend after Thanksgiving we are hosting our Customer Appreciation Days. When you come by the winery, you’ll enjoy a new wine release, food samples, flash sales, and time spent with friends in a relaxing atmosphere. Saturday we have a few extra surprises in store for Small Business Saturday, so head out to the country and join us for an afternoon.
