Dear Fellow Jellied Cranberry Sauce Fans,
This holiday season i want you to ignore the noise coming from people who take the opportunity to be snobs about jellied cranberry sauce. If you love jellied cranberry sauce its probably because you've had it on the table for your holiday meals since you were itty bity. Its nostalgic. Its classic. It might even taste very good to you and yet year and after year we must listen to people mock and degrade this simple yet understated side dish of the holiday season. You can mess up mac and cheese. Burn rolls. Dry out a turkey. These are real disasters that can leave families poinsioned, traumatized, people never cooking in the presence of others again and yet all we need is a can opener. Not having a can opener in the home doesn't hurt or mock other people but we, jellied cranberry sauce fans, still find ourselves at the center of the discourse.
This holiday season,, you hold steady. Hold fast to your love of jellied cranberry sauce. Dress up your slices in a beautiful serving dish. Share it willingly. If you find resistance, make a note to never offer again. For I have found revenge is best serve cold.....like left over JELLIED CRANBERRY SAUCE!
Also this...(From the Ocean Spray Website)...."In an agricultural cooperative like Ocean Spray, our farmers are the shareholders! That means 100 percent of profits from products made from their fruit go back to them. They are the primary decision-makers with regard to the cooperative’s future. They elect the board of directors to oversee and work with the cooperative’s management team on production, marketing and innovation of new and delicious cranberry products. They also reinvest their equity into the cooperative to keep it operating and help it grow stronger for future generations of farmer-owners!"
So there! Supporting farmers!
