Wind Fall

Quite unexpectedly, our Neighbor offered us 6 pounds of Fresh Cranberries straight from Wisconsin. It seems to me that Farm Folks take advantage of Wind Falls, those unexpected delights. Melanie dropped by to pick the Cranberries and began making plans for preserving them.

She made Cranberry Sauce, Cranberry Juice, Dried Cranberries, and Cranberry Leather. Once again, she kept the amount of Sweetener low. In fact, only the Sauce and Leather had Sweetener. She used Local Honey. For the Sauce, she also added Apple. The Juice and Dried Cranberries are intended to be used medicinally from suggestions of Rosemary Gladstar in her book Family Herbal (2001).

These Creations were beautiful with the Sun streaming in. Even on a Cloudy Day, the color Red was Brilliant.
