So Porter, I understand that, but I enjoy the cranberries much more now that I have started making the the sauce, as opposed to the can of sauce.

Here is the recipe I've settled on. Simple and tasty!

Never did can. My mom made sauce and then I married in to a norwegian family and they have a really good cranberry sauce, I think I just like it better cold and with with cold turkey ....slapped between some nice sourdough bread, nice crisp green lettuce, some swiss, and I even like the leftover cooked carrots (butter/dill) in it. I think its that I want to enjoy the hot meal with a good gravy, the saltiness or something, and a cranberry sauce usually erases that flavor for me. It's all good.

"Hit" a bog? Whaazzat mean, sneak out into a bog and pick some on the sly?:D Nice looking berries.
Do you visit a cranberry farm and buy some fresh berries directly from the farmer? Or do you know of a wild bog that has 'em growing thickly enough to fill those bowls? (Just kidding...it might take days to pick that many cranberries in the wild).
Receiving a small bag of fresh berries from the cranberry farmer I used to work for was always a welcome bonus. One harvest, when I was still working there, I made sure to set a small sack of nice ones off to the side after I picked an area that I had planted about 4 years before. Those were the best cranberries I ever ate!:)

We had two cranberry sauces on Thursday. One was a traditional sauce. The second was an orange/cranberry sauce. Both yum. Did the sourdough sandwich, turkey, swiss, apple/onion/celery/sausage stuffing, cranberry sauce, and mustard dill carrots...slightly grilled with hot gravy on side for dipping...oh it was heaven!

That cranberry sauce with the orange rinds cooked in with it is the best I ever ate....

You are getting me hungry Porter.

So Friday after Thanksgiving, and before the Apple Cup, I am making a double batch of Lefsa with the kids! Mmmm, Lefse and cranberry sauce ;-)
"Lefsa"! It deserves to begin with a capital "L"! I nearly grew up on the stuff (well, at least during the holidays).
I went north of the Arctic Circle in Norway last year with my son to see the island our ancestors emigrated from in the 1890's. We found long lost relatives still living there and were elated (all of us) to realize that we made our Lefsa exactly the same way.
Good stuff!
