Day 3: 2014 Sweet Paul Holiday Countdown presented by Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day

I was invited to a friend's house for holiday dinner last year and my job was to bring the cranberry sauce. I really wanted to come up with something a bit different, so I created this recipe. It's sweet with just the right amount of tang and the thyme and walnuts make it special. It's so good, just perfect with roast turkey.

This cranberry sauce is inspired by the cranberry scent from Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day. Bright, shiny cranberries are tart and tangy—yet sprinkled with a little bit of something sweet. These round, red fruits bring a delightful pucker to holiday dishes.
