"THERE WAS always a cranberry salad on our holiday table#151;Mother made it with fresh raw cranberries. I was delighted when she would ask me to help grind the cranberries in her old food grinder...I could go on turning its crank forever. How I loved hearing the cranberries pop as they passed through!"
