    The bottle of calvados that I brought back from France should work out well as an ingredient.

    I had never even heard of a palate cleanser before this. But I have heard of having a round between meals

    I like this idea for the palate cleanser. What about liquid refreshments?

    If I stick to my religious requirements, I can't have any alcohol or strong caffeinated drinks. i e coffee or tea. Herbal is ok. As are sodas, juices, flavored waters, non-alcoholic eggnog or hot chocolate.

    What do you mean, liquid refreshments as palate cleansers?

    I like this idea above. ^^^^

    Some were mentioning various alcoholic beverages as palate cleansers if I read that right. Which I prefer not to do because of religious constraints. Shouldn't do coffee or tea, either. Unless it is Herbal Tea. I was wondering if you had any additional ideas.

    On Thanksgiving and Christmas, we usually have the traditional turkey, dressing, ham, veggies, sweet potato pie, etc. The only unusual tradition is a hominy dish that is made with sour cream, cheese, and jalapenos. I forget the real name but I call it hot hominy. Good stuff!

    If you're willing to share, I would love to have the recipe for that hominy dish.
