Apparently cranberries are not a big favorite in this area. When I moved to this town in 1999, a day or two after Thanksgiving (or Christmas--not sure which), Food Lion (grocery store) had all their fresh cranberries free. I asked if there was a limit, and they said no. I was going to take just a few, so as not to be rude, but I was told that no one else was getting them, so I might as well take them all. So I did. I ended up with about 27 bags of cranberries. I gave a few away and froze the rest. I still have a few bags left, and they are just as good as they were when I got them!!
