Another creative way to use up your leftovers and extend the feast! This recipe comes straight from GreenStar Coop. Alas, I have no leftover cranberry sauce to play with, but these muffins sound so phenomenal that I wanted to share the recipe. When I dropped by the coop the other day for some last minute essentials, I chatted with the recipe creator, Deb, who tested these muffins several times to perfection. I borrowed these beautiful pictures from my friend Shoshi’s wild harvest in a cranberry bog near Ithaca, and cranberry sauce muffins from Chef Dennis.
