I'm all out of the fresh cranberries, which I bought and froze for recipes like this. Now my store says they are out of them too. Anyone else having this problem?
BTW, your recipe looks great!

Two years ago around this time in Janurary I was wanting some fresh cranberries so I asked the produce guy at Walmart what gave. He told me that they are a strick seasonal thing that you can only get from right before Thanksgiving thru Christmas. After that when they are gone they are gone until the next year. One good thing is they are quite inexpensive and they freeze well as is in the bag they come in. Every year now I but 5 or 6 extra bags in November to throw in the freezer for the rest of the year.

HTH

BTW frozen cranberries work just as well as fresh.

I ran into the same prob last year--all the stores here told me they get them in for Thanksgiving only and when they are sold they don't get any more till next year. They don't even sell frozen ones here. So this year I bought several extra bags and froze them myself.

Those look wonderful Kevin. If I made all the wonderful goodies you do, we'd be gaining weight big time. You must have alot of self control.

Thanks Kevin...

I will have to try these this weekend. I wonder if ground pecans or walnuts would be a good filling? Once again, please publish that cookbook - I have more than a dozen people I can buy it for!

Thank you Jackie. Likewise if I ate all I made I would also be gaining weight. I have no problem getting most of it out of the house before it does any major damage though. And if I do over indulge that just means an extra couple of miles on the my treadmill and recliner bike that day. I have a complete gym at home and put it to good use daily.
