Cranberry Shipment

Our friend Revel, whose family grows cranberries in Massachusetts, was kind enough to share some of her family's harvest with us!  She sent a box of loose cranberries that rattled like a rainstick, which intrigued Tye for almost an hour.

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 :)


  1. oh my goodness!!! I'm totally besides myself. LOVE these pictures!! I was actually amazed that my very picky daughter actually loves chewing on the cranberries. Of course we've got to watch them closely and all. Thank you Em, for posting these. You have totally made my day!

  2. Oh, fun! Cranberries are my favorite fruit. Yay, Tye, for liking them raw. :)


I love your comments!
