100-Mile Thanksgiving Menu

Swap this for that to green your holiday meal

Cranberry sauce

Swap: Canned cranberry jelly for homemade sauce

Eco-factor: Buy local cranberries if you can get them (they’re grown from British Columbia to Nova Scotia). After all, Canada is the world’s number two producer of cranberries, a North American native fruit. Then stew them on the stovetop along with some local pears or apples to sweeten them up, instead of just reaching for the processed kind.

Where: Most grocery stores stock fresh cranberries just before the holiday, but make sure read the label to find out where the berries come from.

How much: about $2.49/340 g bag.
