When I was a kid living on Cape Cod, we used to go down to the bog and pull out a tray of honey. We would pick a handful of cranberries and then suck out the honey from the comb. Got a few stings every so often, but that was the price you had to pay.

What was the time of year (season) when you picked the cranberries?

So, in the commercial, you would choose oil over cream?

Whew I am so glad the apple pie was protected Addie.

Cute kitty story kathleen.

Thank you Aunt Bea and Whiskadoodle.

I make fresh cranberry relish but we also have the canned jellied for the hub. I have never made homemade cranberry sauce. I have an extra bag of them and may try the recipe for whole berry sauce.
Thanks, MsM.

Regarding the cranberry sauce, you will be surprised how easy fresh cranberry sauce is to make. I love when the berries pop in the pan. This year, I varied my cranberry sauce to go with the duck that Frank roasted. I added the zest of a Mandarin orange and surpremed the slices into the regular recipe found on many bags. It made a nice side for the duck.

I don't know about the commercial, but there was no whipping cream to be had in the town store yesterday anyway. And I like Cool Whip. I'm not a label reader. If it's sold as food, I'm good with it

Cranberries are harvested in the fall. Usually around the beginning of October. Once the harvest was in, we used to listen to the weather report during supper, and if the report said the dreaded word "FROST" we all left the food on the table and headed for the bog for flooding to protect the cranberry vines for next years crop. Once the berries are picked the vines have to be protected. When I was a kid they used to harvest them with large wooden comb like boxes. Hard work. Those boxes are not light by any means. and there was an art to it. You only want to comb the top of the vine. Everybody in the family worked on the flooding. But the kids stayed out of the way during harvest.

When I was a kid, Cape Cod was a farming community. We had animals on our property. Now the whole of the Cape is commercial. It has been more than twenty years since I was back there. I have no desire to ever see it again.

I ate at my parents. Fantastic meal, as always. I had turkey, mashed potatoes with noodles, stuffing, sweet potato casserole, and pumpkin pie. Loved it!
