« What I learned about getting even at SOAR | Main | Random November before it is over »



WOW! Your basket is wonderful. It is a most excellent basket for holding yarn! How fun to take classes from a master basketmaker. I'm quite envious of the artisans in the NE area.
I have been dreaming of cranberries and stumped as what recipe I should use for sauce. You have the answer! The sauce sounds marvelous.


What Margene said! That basket is unbelievable! Now regretting I didn't take that class!


#8. Make another really, really good cranberry sauce:

12 oz cranberry
5 whole cloves
5 whole allspice (1/2 tsp ground)
2 cinnamon sticks (1 heap tsp ground)
1 1/2 c sugar

Mix berries and spice with 1 c of water. Heat on medium until berries burst, ~10 min. Remove from heat, add sugar, cook on low for 5 minutes. Refrigerate overnight. Serve cold.


You covered the cranberry basics and your tart is always awesome. That basket is incredible!


Glorious basket! My fav is Triple Cranberry sauce using fresh, dried and concentrate flavored with orange zest. Will have to explore your version.

Lovely basket, it looks so even.

Cranberries - stick them in the freezer for when you need to make cranberry sauce. Even I can make cranberry sauce except that I usually have to make it twice after I've burnt the first lot on the pan.


I need zee recipes if you please. Please.

AWESOME basket. And you even made that with like zero hours of sleep?


You can never have enough baskets. Weave on!
My grandmother used to make an incredible relish - involving running cranberries and chunks of oranges (peels and all) through a grinder. Unfortunately all I remember about the process is getting to turn the handle of the grinder - no idea of proportions or other ingredients or what might have needed to be cooked when. Sure wish I had the recipe, as it beat the pants off cranberry sauce...


How about we see if Wendy will do a workshop over here -- I'd love to take one!


Nice basket!

And I must say, I prefer either option 5 or something resembling option 1 to option 6.


weaving baskets feeds another fiber-y place in our brains, right? I have a stash of reed only slightly less astounding than my yarn stash!

your basket is beautiful!

Lovely basket. Nantucket Cranberry pie from Laurie Colwin is really easy and really good.
