One of my all-time favorite sandwiches is the “gobbler.” This sandwich can consist of any permutation of Thanksgiving leftovers, but my ultimate combination absolutely must include turkey, homemade whole berry cranberry sauce, and mashed sweet potatoes. To be perfectly honest, I don’t reserve the gobbler only for the day after Thanksgiving… I enjoy it throughout the year using either sliced deli turkey or poached chicken breast meat. Although my interpretation of the gobbler is real close to sandwich perfection, the unique but absolutely delicious addition of maple peanut butter seals the deal because — let’s face it — doesn’t peanut butter make everything better?

Cranberry-Cherry Sauce

Ingredients

4 cups frozen cherries
2 cups frozen cranberries
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup dried cherries
1 tablespoon arrowroot powder or cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon pure maple or vanilla extract

Procedure

1. Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan, stirring to mix.
2. Place on stove over medium-high heat until the fruit begins to sizzle, about 2 minutes.
3. Reduce stove heat to low and simmer until fruit breaks down and sauce has thickened, about 20 minutes, stirring often. If the cranberries need a little help breaking down, gently press with the back of a spoon until they burst.
4. Cool to room temperature and then chill in the refrigerator until cold.
