Your Turkey Day Side Dish

To go along with all these turkey posts, Cranberries are good for you. And the people who sell them aren't your usual agribusiness(pdf). (As for that canned cranberry sauce... we've discussed it before.) And they've got a blog! Ooops... I mean bog. Hey, this ain't Pepsi Blue.

Thank you, I guess, and hosted from Uranus. What a sense of history you have.
Will this end well, Wendell?

I've been to the Ocean Spray factory tour in Henderson, NV. They have some neat machines and videos and such. Plus, free cranberry juice at the end of the tour!

Cranberries are a remarkably likable food.

Fezboy, I was about to post the same recipe; here is the story behind it.

By the way, I actually brought some of Mama Stamberg's Cranberry Relish to my family's thanksgiving dinner a fe years back. I kinda liked it, but the rest of the family was glad I made the more traditional cranberry sauce as well.

I dig the Stamberg relish, but I really like the tang of horseradish, which is a non-starter for many folks.

Cranberry Bog County Park on Long Island, NY is a great nature walk. No pictures on that link, so here's some slow-loading ones.

Cranberry farmer's heirs donate $2 million to UBC to study pulmonary fibrosis and cranberries (not necessarily together).

I've been to Ocean Spray in Plymouth - they have a nice little museum. On a sunny fall day, a wet cranberry harvest can be a truly stunning sight. When my sister said she was going to take me to see one, I thought ho-hum, cranberries, there goes a good Saturday ... but we rounded a bend in the road and I couldn't believe how gorgeous the sight before me was. Plus, it's a pretty interesting process to watch. Here's a decent flickr gallery of a harvest.

I will never forgive Ocean Spray for buying Northland, whose juice was the only brand without CORN SYRUP in it. I can't drink Ocean Spay juices - they're just cranberry-tinged sugar water, er, corn syrup water...

can we retire the deeply unfunny Pepsi Blue joke yet?

Ok, maybe I'm just grumpy 'cause I don't know where to find turkey, cranberry sauce, pie, or stuffing in my city :-/

I don't like them. The lead singer yodels too much.
