Directions

Quick Tip

Eggplant
An eggplant should feel heavy for its size and is tastiest at less than 1 ½ pounds. Look for smooth, shiny dark purple skin and a green stem with leaves clinging to the top.

    Cranberries

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
