Maple-Cranberry Syrup Recipe – Plus Batch Cooking Plan (and my Thanksgiving Plan)

Posted By Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom On November 22, 2010 @ 9:09 am In Baking,batch cooking,How To,Recipes,Savings | 4 Comments

I figure…while I’m in the kitchen this week, I might as well double up on some things…like pancakes and cookie dough. But before we get to the doubling and the batch cooking, let’s chat for a minute about the really important part of this week’s kitchen activity.  Thanksgiving sides and desserts.

My mother-in-law is hosting the feast this year…so I’ll be bringing sides and a pie.  Here’s what I’ll be hauling over.

Well, maybe not hauling. She lives just down the road. And none of these dishes are real heavy!

Thanksgiving Plan

  • Homemade Butternut Cloverleaf Rolls – Recipe coming Tuesday. I hope!

Batch Cooking Plan

Maple-Cranberry Syrup


  • 1 14 oz. can whole cranberry sauce ($.58) with sale and store coupon
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup (free from Amazon and Swagbucks [9])
  • 1/4 cup milk ($.03)


  • Dump all ingredients into a bowl and whisk until well combined.  If you want a thinner syrup, add more milk and/or maple syrup.
  • Douse your pancakes with this delectable “Fall” syrup.
  • Also, a fabulous way to use up any leftover cranberry sauce after the big feast!

Cost $.61 plus the pancakes
