Nancy Leson always hosts huge gatherings for Thanksgiving. How huge? Huge enough to require two birds, each the size of a turkey-shaped dirigible.
One way she keeps the cooking-day rush to a minimum is to make what she can in advance, especially her favorite cranberry sauce, which keeps so well she can make it six months ahead of time. I was shocked — simply shocked.
"Nancy Leson," I gasped, "I cannot believe that you are talking on an NPR affiliate about a cranberry sauce recipe that is not Susan Stamberg's."
