Since Thanksgiving, my freezer has contained not one bag, not two bags, not three bags but at least four simultaneous bags of cranberries. Yes, I keep making cranberried recipes, but I keep replacing what I use. The truth-I am a cranberry hoarder.
Why do I have this need to possess cranberries? The essence of cranberries is that unlike most fruits in the modern world, you can’t buy them all year. There’s a cranberry window of opportunity. And isn’t the scarcity of a commodity, the basis of its economic value.
Besides cranberries look like rubies.
