9 Thanksgiving Sides for Planners & Project-Lovers

This week we brought you Thanksgiving sides that take 20 minutes, 30 minutes, an hour, and two hours. And, today, we have our final sides segment: Thanksgiving sides for those who like to plan ahead—those who don't mind pickling things for a few days, allowing confit to confit, and methodically letting challah rest and rise.

It's not that these 9 recipes are hard. They just require a little Thanksgiving love and care (T.L.C., if you will) and bit more time than your standard soup or roasted vegetable. We promise, though, they're more than worth it.

Tell us: Do you have sides that might take a bit longer, but are, in the end, very much worth it?
