I can’t help but think of some of my favorite books from childhood, Cranberry Thanksgiving, Cranberry Christmas, and even Cranberry Halloween written and illustrated by Harry Devlin. I remember walking to the library with my Grandma, who was a 3rd grade teacher, and checking out as many books as my tote or hers could carry. The Cranberry books were especially great because at the end of the story there was a recipe, with cranberries. Yum!
My favorite recipe was in the Halloween book and was some sort of a ‘pie’. It involves a lot of butter, sugar and flour. So, I don’t think I’ll be making it anytime soon. This oatmeal, though, is really tasty with the sweet apples and fresh tart cranberries. It also will make your house smell amazing! Enjoy!
