]OK, so I know the first thing you're going to say: "Dude, I don't have vattlingon or whatever you call them." Don't worry about it. Yes, this dish is better with them. But you can substitute fresh or frozen cranberries, too. Almost as good. No access to cranberries at all? Use some unripe other berries, such as half-ripe huckleberries, gooseberries, currants, blueberries or even blackberries, mulberries or raspberries. The point is slightly sweet and very tart. No spruce tips? Squirt a little lemon juice on the plate and use about 1 tablespoon fresh chopped rosemary. Not the same, but will give you that piney acidity you want. The rest should be easy.
Serve this with crusty bread or some sort of potato; roasted fingerling potatoes would be my choice.
