FOR THE HOLIDAY
BY RED JEN FORD
YOGI FOOD [farmers' corner]
Thanksgiving is a special time of gratitude – for our friends, our family, and even our local
farmers. As we plan our menus to celebrate the harvest season, I’m grateful that most
of our traditional dishes can be made with ingredients sourced from our own Southern
California backyard. But one dish that puts us in a pickle when it comes to traditional vs.
local is the Thanksgiving staple of sweet, tart cranberry sauce. Whether you open a can
or simmer your own fresh berries on the stove top, chances are that this star ingredient
has flown across the country from Wisconsin or Massachusetts.
