When I opened the box, I was blown away by the beauty of the little berries. Cranberries have to be the most gorgeous fruit I've seen with their array of rich, dark red to blush pink hues. Tye liked them, too.
Before I even realized it, Tye had popped a berry in her mouth and was munching away. I waited for the sourpuss face, but it never came- and in fact, she couldn't wait to shove another in her mouth! (I know, I know, they have to be a choking hazard worse than a grape- but she crunched the berries right away and spent a long time chewing each one under my careful observation.)
I've learned so much this year about cranberries from Revel's blog Cranberry Moms, which she writes with my friend Alison. I'll have a whole new appreciation for the little berries as I cook and eat them- or join Tye in popping a few in my mouth raw. Thanks, Revel!
P.S.- These berries came from the bog where the Ocean Spray commercials are shot! A taste of fame :)
