By R. Marilyn Schmidt: Cranberry Sauce has been a Thanksgiving tradition dating back to the days of the Pilgrims. However, there is more to cranberries that Cranberry Sauce. Early settlers are credited with naming this berry. Because the stems of the cranberry blossom are curved like the neck of a crane with tiny flowers shaped like a crane’s bill, the name first was crane-berry, then became cranberry. In addition to many recipes for cranberries, the book contains the history of cranberries, how cranberries grow, how to cook cranberries, nutrition information, and how to store cranberries. An index is included.
