Hi Paula, I grew up on a farm that my great-grandfather homesteaded, now my husband and I own 20 acres of the same farm along with my parents still owning most of the rest. On the farm is a marsh that my great-grandfather picked cranberries. When my grandfather was old enough, he and his father transplanted cranberry vines and then my father and grandfather transplanted vines. To this day, my dad and I have gone out to pick cranberries on this same marsh. Our cranberries are so much better that what you can buy (because we picked them while remembering our ancestors) Our favorite receipe is Cranberry Crunch. My brother smothers his mashed potatoes with cranberry sauce! I am definetely going to try your cranberry fritters. Thanks. Holly
