Pumpkin Spice goes well with... Cranberry

Pumpkin can be a very heavy flavor that can even develop and oily or musty taste.  A great flavor to add pop and brightness, and connect the savory pumpkin with the warm spice flavors is dried cranberry.

Pumpkin spice and cranberry helps you slide happily from fall towards the Christmas season. Examples of products that use this combination to great effect are listed below.  If you know if any others, please let me know!
  •  Trader Joe's Pumpkin Cranberry crisps.  A pumpkin Melba toast studded with dried cranberries. These crisps ride the border between savory and sweet, and so go well with both savory and sweet toppings and dips.  I would recommend paring with Beemster Pumpkin Spice Gouda and a relish or jelly of your choice!
  • And wash it down with the Pumpkick Spiced Season Ale.  Cranberry and lemongrass flavors make this a very light and fresh tasting ale that really stands apart from all the other pumpkin spice-inspired beers.
