Turkey Day? Move Over, Butterball

En_02 The autumnal meal now has as many interpretations as there are kicks in the Rockettes' Thanksgiving Day routine. Omnivores can choose from organic, free-range, or locally farmed birds, which respectively promise fewer hormones, more humane treatment, and less transit-related fuel consumption. Vegetarians and others cutting back on animal products can opt for soy-based faux gobblers.

And how about those sides? Sierra shanghaied nine hungry staffers to test cranberry sauces, as a small but increasing number of growers opt to cultivate these wetland-native berries the organic way--without synthetic pesticides. For a deliciously tart, sweetly organic, or 1950s-style jellied sauce, try one of these winners.
