Homemade Cornmeal

Did you know? When you are out of cornmeal, and you have a craving for cornbread, don't run to the store. Just grab popping corn and grind your own!

Ingredients:
1 pound of popping corn kernels

Directions:
Divided the corn kernels in 3 or 4 equal batches. Grind each batch of the corn kernels in a blender until the consistency is that of typical cornmeal. Use a mesh strainer to make sure the grain is consistent, and if you have any larger pieces, just process them again in the blender.

Yield: 1 pound of popping corn will give you about 2 cups of cornmeal.

Cranberry Mango Sauce

1 can of cranberry sauce (not jelly)
1 cup dried craisins
1 pound package of fresh cranberries
¾ - 1 cup fresh diced ripe mango
½ cup orange juice
zest from 1 orange
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground ginger
½ cup (or more) Triple Sec
½ cup molasses
¼ cup corn starch mixed with ¾ cup water

stir in all the ingredients and simmer until fresh berries are tender (about 45 minutes) stir in ½ cup (or more) chopped pecans 
DONE!
