1 Pound(s) Fresh cranberries
2 Cup(s) Brown or white sugar
1/4 Cup(s) Brandy
In 1767, John Adams wrote the following in his journal: "Arrived at
Dr. Tuft's where I found a fine Wild Goose on the Spit, and
Cranberries in the Skillet for Dinner." This is what he tasted. Spread
the cranberries in an iron skillet that has a cover. Sprinkle the
sugar over the berries, cover the skillet, and place in a "slack" oven
(250ø) for 1 hour. Remove the lid and pour the brandy into the
skillet. They are now ready to serve. From <The Frugal Gourmet Cooks
