Looking for a way to serve that jellied cranberry sauce? Simply remove the sauce from the can by cutting off the lid with your can opener, then, poke a small hole in the other side of the can  to allow air in the can. This will make it easier to remove the sauce.  Then, slice 1/4 inch depth rings. Take a shot glass or small cookie cutter, any shape you like, and cut out pieces. Place on your holiday plate as a garnish!

After the holidays, use extra cranberry’s on any dish by cutting out shapes as a garnish!

You can also make Hors d’oeuvres by placing each medallion on a cracker with cheese, on a small leaf from boston butter lettuce, or just about anything that is small and can hold the medallions!
