Somebody nearby is having a cranberry festival this weekend. Oh please . . . I figure some jokers got sold some worthless land, and the only thing growing there were cranberries. Nothing daunted, though, the began to promote the various fictions, such as that you need cranberries to make it a holiday, or that cranberries is good fer yer pee . . . whaddayathink?
cranberries can be edible I suppose if combined with something else which actually is edible.
oh, wait, I need to check with BBB to see if I agree or not.
Ya gotta give credit to the poor sumbitch who was suckered into buying a cranberry bog who first hit upon all the bogus reasons to buy his cranberies.
I guess it may be just me but cranberry pie and cranberry jelly is good. But, in all of them you have to add a lot of sugar.
Here . . . you can have my serving . . .
Here's a ratio 1:4 for every one cup of cranberries you had four cups of sugar.
Pretend they are really small apples. Polish one up and take it to teacher.
I took some cranberry jelly to my teacher and she looked at me like I was crazy said "Thank you" at the end of classes it "somehow ended up in the trash can."
CRanberries is no more a bogus food than is RHUBARB. With all the oxalic acid in rhubarb, you can actually die eating it.
Loodifisk served with turnip puree, bear meat, and a side of cranberry slop.
That all sounds appetizing...
Cranberries have always been a stretch for me, though I didn't know that about myself then, I was just reactive. One of my cousins' husbands has cooked up as many as three cranberry condiments on thanksgiving. My mother once participated in some cranberry contest (where maybe she won a plate), with a lot of cranberry efforts in her kitchen in the meantime.
That being so, they are cheaper than some other dried fruit, and I sometimes add them to muffins. On the other hand, regular ordinary fruit is ok in quickbreads and muffins.
Take some cranberries and put 'em in a pot. Add orange juice and lots of sugar. cook until the cranberries start to pop. Chill and eat. You will do it and you will like it. trust me.
See Cranberries aren't all bad. You do some stuff to them and it'll be A-OK! I'm not the only weird one. Thank you Swimpy.
. . . I'm not the only weird one. . .
That's an understatement on A2K, Minnie.
That's a good thing. I guess.
I'm not sharing the cranberry juice with you anymore.
I'm already happy not having to share the cranberry sauces and jellies and breads mmmmmmmm
Would you mind passing the jelly though? xD
