Do We Need A Fruit Forum?

Got a bag of losing-their-freshness cranberries, and I was all set to start skimming the board looking for ideas when I realized we don't have a forum dedicated to fruit.

A lot of info could be covered under such a topic: stewing, canning, dried fruit, homemade jams and jellies, etc.

Whaddya think, admin?

Mud, stick the cranberries in the freezer. They'll last for up to a year. When you go to use them you don't even need to bother thawing them. I keep probably a half-dozen bags on hand after the holidays and then use them throughout the year.

For now fruit would go under miscellaneous - Many moons ago when all the forums were set up I asked for a Fruit Forum, a forum for cooking discussion only, a breakfast forum, - - - - The answers were - the fruit goes under miscellaneous, the cooking discussions happen under the proper forum for the topic you are discussion OR they go in the miscellaneous forum, and the breakfast forum can fall under the Milk, Eggs, Dairy, or the casserole forum, or the miscellaneous, or other forum appropriate per the ingredients.

So, I can assure you ALL and MORE forums were asked for but just like I can't get "behind" this board and change the snowflakes, I can't create a forum either. And I can't suggest either because it's been about 1 1/2 - 2 months since I've "seen" the administrator. - The longest stretch though was 13 months - so if you think YOU are frustrated!!!

Without knowing that Kitchenelf had already requested these, I made a few suggestions to the Admin about new categories that are needed. One of them was a fruit category. I suggested that the existing vegetable category just be changed to fruits and vegetables. From what Kitchenelf has said, it does not sound like these will be added and who knows when the admin will even see the suggestions, but at least they have been made

GB - the more that ask the more maybe it will be understood that we, as cooks, know what we are talking about and we want to make this board better for US!!!!

Thanks for trying, elf. It's a shame that the administrator of this board is apparently so disengaged, even with his "helpers."

PA, I think the freezer is a good choice for now on the c-berry thing. Not imaginative or energetic enough to do anything with them at the moment.

Changing the existing veggie forum to fruit and vegetables sounds like a good option, I do hope our friendly admin gives it some thought, it seems a shame to have one of the most enjoyable elements of food shoved in miscellaneous! I have often had a fruit question or comment and no idea where to put it!
