Mmmm! Cranberries! Every time I see cranberries, I just know the holiday
season has started! It reminds me of cold weather, family time and carefree
moments as a child. You can find them in baked goods, in sauces, as drinks,
cooked with meat, or even strung up with popcorn to go on a Christmas tree!
But what do you really know about cranberries?
Cranberries are grown in huge sandy bogs off of vines in Northern Europe and
in some of the northern United States. They are harvested in September and
October, yet their peak-selling season is between Halloween and Christmas!
When taking home your package of cranberries, throw out any shriveled or
discolored cranberries. They should then be wrapped tight and stored in the

Cranberries are very high in Vitamin C, and can help in the treatment of

The following recipe I have made during Christmas for potluck Christmas

Cranberry Orange Walnut Scones
by Jennifer Wickes copyright 2001
1/2 cup sugar
1-tablespoon baking powder
2-tablespoons grated orange zest
1-cup fresh cranberries
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
For the glaze: 2 tablespoons half and half 2 teaspoons sugar
Preheat your oven to 425 and butter a baking sheet. In a large bowl, mix
together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Blend the butter into the
dry ingredients, using your fingertips or a pastry blender, until the
mixture is crumbly. Add the orange zest, cranberries and walnuts and toss to
combine. Add the milk and juice, and stir until the dough is rough.
Gather the dough together and place on a floured work surface. Knead gently
about 10 times. Divide the dough in half and pat each piece into a circle
about 6 inches in diameter and about ˝ inch thick. To glaze, brush the
circles with the half and half and sprinkle with sugar. Cut each circle into
eight pie-shaped wedges. Place the scones, barely touching, on the prepared
baking sheet. Bake until puffy and golden, 15 18 minutes.
Makes 16 scones.
My mother makes the next recipe for a Christmas auction every year to help
raise money for the non-profit organization she belongs too. People have
paid as much as $12 a jar for this!
Cranberry Sauce With Bourbon
by Joan P. Chilvers
12 oz. fresh cranberries

1/2 c. bourbon

oven for 1 hour. Stir contents occasionally during cooking.

sits, the stronger the flavours.
Store in a refrigerator indefinitely.
