From the Cranberry Connection cookbook by Beatrice Ross Buszek from Granville Centre, Nova Scotia. Perfect for fall and winter so here it is. The recipe says that this is an elegant simple dinner that is nice served with thick slices of country bread and red wine (and candlelight). This freezes well.
