Cranberries Jubilee!







     A Cranberry Version of Classic Cherries Jubilee!
     Cranberries Jubilee is a variation of the classic Cherries Jubilee recipe.  Cranberries have a flavor that is good for making a Jubilee style sauce.   Cranberries also are as durable as cherries, so the whole cranberries look good after being simmered.
     Cherries Jubilee is traditionally a table side dessert that is prepared in front of guests.  Cherries Jubilee is traditionally served over vanilla ice cream and/or pound cake.  Many chefs prefer sour wild cherries, because the tart flavor accents the sweet ice cream.  Cranberries Jubilee also has a tart flavor that goes well with vanilla ice cream.
