It is difficult to obtain fresh cranberries in certain months of the year. Replace ingredients marked with “*” with jellied whole cranberries.
After Thanksgiving most people are left with plenty of turkey - good time to make the turkey sausage. Fill the casing with turkey leftovers, add spices, add one tablespoon of potato starch and cook in water at 80° C (176° F) for 30 minutes.

Do not grate the bitter white pith which lies under the lemon skin.
