Fall on Nantucket; Fall in Love with Cranberries
~by Leah Mojer
As the summer sun dips in the sky, and kids go back to school, the ocean cools back down to chilly temps and the streets swirl with copper-tinged leaves, it's a harsh realization that the cold temps are not far away. There is always about a week or so of pouting before I truly remember how wonderfully beautiful the Fall season is out here on the island.
The crisp breeze, amazing cloud-filled sunsets, soup cravings, chunky sweaters. We welcome a whole new palate of colorful, hearty produce; squash, pumpkins, juicy apples, and of course Nantucket's crown-jewel, cranberries.
The tradition and history of Cranberry farming on-island dates back 200 years. It's no secret our Cranberries are famous. Usually though, cranberries are relegated to the monotonous post of cranberry sauce and relish, or second-fiddle in sugar-laden quick bread. Here, we bring them to the spotlight in some new and unique recipes.
Bring it on Fall, I've got my cranberries. I am ready.
