At my mother's house, we always have home-made whole berry cranberry sauce as well as jellied sauce (with ridges) from a can. Cranberries are one of the very few fruits native to our continent! This Thanksgiving, please don't forget this uniquely American dish, if not from your own garden then maybe at least from your own state or definitely from your own country.
Carriel; Because of your article I bought two bags of cranberries Monday. It said freeze one right in the bag for later. So I did. I ground it up with the oranges, apples, jello and, articfial sugar. It does need blending!! whew. But I think it will be great by the morning and fantastic for our Thanksgiving meal on Saturday. (yeah we are late, family all will be together then).
I planted a good fall garden this year. We tilled the rest and let the geese in as we usually do, they never seem to bother anything. They for the first time have stood over top of the cabbages, gossiping, and eating them!!!!! Never did it before???? Oh, well it is what it is. They want my lettuce this fall too which is also a first, but they are fenced out of that. I have been feeding them some along and they for the first time really want it!!! I am having fresh lettuce from the garden this Saturday === Not bad for November in Kentucky and today it was snowing a little bit.
