An update... we are a few days away from Thanksgiving 2013 and yesterday DH came home with 4 giant costco sized bags of cranberries.

As noted in earlier posts, I ordered a new food processor last year that arrived too late to use for Thanksgiving prep. It's been here for a year and while I've used it heavily, my DH has not. It turns out this has been bothering him and so he got extra berries so he can practice in advance of the big day. After all, Thanksgiving is all about the cranberry relish!

I'll keep you posted on his progress....

Just in case, have some band-aids on hand.

Probably wouldn't hurt to send it to her.

Did you get the Magimix in the end? Just to cheer you on, I've had my Magimix for over 30 years and it's still going strongand in use 2 or 3 times a week or more at festive times. I did have to replace the blade a couple of years back because it had blunted but it had had a lot of use - For the first couple of years that I had it I was making 30-40lbs of pate and terrines per week and using the Magimix for chopping the meats!

Yes, I got it just after the holiday last year and think it's just an awesome machine. BTW - tonight's the night for the annual berry carnage. Shuddering in anticipation ....

Great story Janet. Hope it goes better this year.

I was not allowed to cook cranberries today, not allowed to create red stains on the stove, counters or anywhere else. I had already singed two pot holders making something else.

My secret cheater cranberry sauce during the year, when cranberries are not available. One can whole berry sauce. Using a micro-plane, grate in however much fresh ginger to taste. Stir. Chill. Eat. Or use to glaze grilled meats. I call it fancy if I grate in some orange peel too.
