Cranberry Craziness
Originally uploaded by mirthmobile.

At this most wonderful time of the year, the Thanksgiving to Christmas, Hannukah through New Years and Kwanza holiday food is brought out and piled high.

The Cranberry of course plays a major role in the feasting. There’s the traditional cranberry sauce – shaped like the can (my favorite) or the whole-berry variety. Some people make their own with orange peel and they are just plain wrong. (violation of food rule #1 and #8 – see future post about the food rules.)

Over the years, the cranberry has popped up in myriad other places, usually in a beverage. There’s cranberry Juice cocktail, cran-grape, cran-apple, cran-raspberry, cran-strawberry, cran-mango, cran-blueberry, Cranberry Gingerale and a potporri of chutneys, syrups, and other concoctions.

This year, whilst exploring one of my favorite local groceries, I discovered this (see picture) cranberry horseradish sauce. You know, I don’t even care if it’s good. I don’t care if one drop of this on my tongue would clear my sinuses and would transport my tastebuds to another dimension upon wings of extacy. This time the cranberry salesman has gone too far.

Back off cranberry man!

maybe it’s just me…

    I will forever be grateful to you for introducing me to cran-blueberry juice. Of course, we all know it’s the blueberry that’s making the drink, but the cran certainly plays its part.
