It’s getting to be cranberry season!! Everybody cheer!! Or whine, if necessary. Go ahead, we’ll wait. *looking at watch*
I luvs me some cranberries — especially since they’re grown in Oregon. Throw a handful of dried cranberries in my morning oatmeal, and I won’t get upset. Hand me a refreshing glass of cranberry juice, cut 50/50 with ice-cold soda water, and I will follow you around the rest of the evening — fair warning. How about a whole cranberry dipped in chocolate — OMG!!!!
The only cranberry thing I don’t like is that wiggly jiggly can-shaped cranberry “sauce.” It’s too sweet, and the texture makes my tongue want to slap me, and cry “Why? How could you do this to me!?” Then I have to sooth it with a large slice of pumpkin pie, because I’m nice like that.
Okay, enough of my raptures. What Fall flavors are your favorites, and what are you most looking forward to preparing/eating? Recipes are welcome!
