Cranes on Your Plate

Dear Renard, the most gracious host, has published another one of my guest posts. Enjoy, Beautiful People!

Renard's World

The stores are glutted with cranberries – Thanksgiving is coming, and if we believe Bridget Shirvell, one of the authors on, cranberry sauce is the only one item on the traditional Thanksgiving menu that doesn’t vary from region to region and from culture to culture. Stuffing is highly questionable, so are pumpkins, and – gasp! – even the ubiquitous turkey. But humble cranberry, or kranbeere, named by Germans settlers because when flowered, it looked like the head of a crane, is always present, either as a sauce or as jelly, either on its sugared own or combined with other fruit or berries.

  2. Cranberries are one of my favorite parts of the Thanksgiving meal. This sounds like a really nice twist on the tradition.
