Making Cranberries!

Making Cranberries with Grandma Jean (and Aunt Gayle who was noticably absent this year) has become a treasured tradition in our family). What exactly are we making, you ask?
It is a cranberry, apple and orange relish that is put through and old-fashioned grinder and has sugar added to be eaten alongside Turkey on Thanksgiving day. The Otts are crazy for it. Specifically my father-in-law. This and dill pickles. But, that’s another story.
Anyway, so, this is the first year that Schaeffer has been tall enough and strong enough to do the crank–and while she was occasionally distracted by her shiny red tricycle that also resides in the basement–she enjoyed helping and had a great time.
