Does the word “cranberry” evoke memories of Thanksgiving (specifically, those infamous jellied cranberry molds that resemble the shape of a metal can)?
If so, you’re not alone. Cranberries are a staple on many Thanksgiving tables – mine included. But, for some reason, these flavorful tart berries tend to get the cold shoulder the other 364 days of the year.
What do you say we change that, shall we? (more…)
