Good 48º cloudy/foggy morning.

It stayed cloudy and drizzly all day yesterday and we topped at  48º. 

Yesterday I cooked the eggs to make deviled eggs for Turkey Day. I will also take "Mother's Rolls" and pie. These pies I ordered from Schwans... a pumpkin cream pie (with cream cheese) and a cheesecake.... will be delivered today.

Here is a fav of mine. So easy and soooooo good!

4 cups fresh cranberries, rinsed and drained
2 cups sugar

Preheat oven to 350º
Combine ingredients in a casserole dish.
Cover and bake 50-60 minutes, stirring occasionally, until cranberries pop.
Cool then cover and chill until ready to eat.

National Cranberry Day

Another name for cranberries is "bounceberries" because they bounce when ripe.
Some Native Americans called the cranberry "ibimi" which means "bitter berry".
Native Americans and Pilgrims used cranberries as a red dye.
The cranberry is one of only a handful of major fruits native to North America. Others include the blueberry and Concord grape.
During the days of wooden ships and iron men, American vessels carried cranberries. It was the cranberry's generous supply of vitamin C that prevented scurvy.

Cranberries grow on long-running vines in sandy bogs and marshes. Places like Cape Cod comes to mind when you think of a cranberry bog. Ocean Spray also has farms all over North America: Massachusetts, New Jersey, Oregon, Washington, Wisconsin, and parts of British Columbia and Quebec.
