Cranberries.

Whole fresh cranberries. (Okay, freshly frozen cranberries.)

Warmed up in the microwave. With a little bit of sugar.

Sounds worth it!

Is kinda sorta off-topic okay if it fits in halfway well?

Can someone tell me what's up with fennel,

and if you'd put it in your spaghetti sauce?

I've never had it that I know of.

I just saw a spaghetti sauce ad, and they were making

a point of showing great-great-grandmother what's her

name preparing her someday-to-be-famous sauce.

She was putting fennel in it.

The last time I tried a new (to me) spice was, coincidentally,

also connected with spaghetti sauce. I got some basil, and

although it seemed to fit in well with the other flavors involved,

I can't say that I particularly liked it. This was a jar of dried,

possibly old, stuff from the Dollar Tree. Maybe the fresh

variety would be different. That can happen. We'll see.

So do I want to try fennel? Or will it just be more heartbreak? :eusa_doh:

Regarding cranberries, and the eternal can vs. home-made Thanksgiving issue:

I really like the stuff that goes Shlurp! when it comes out of the can. There's

never been any doubt that those 'ridges' in it lock-in the flavor! :P

But a couple of years ago I had some home-made fresh-frozen cranberry glop

that blew me away. Along with a little sugar, the cook had added some

fresh-squeezed lemon and orange.

Makes me wonder about other fruit.

Pineapple, lime, grapefruit.....? Who knows? ( :

I hate fennel. And all of its related tastes -- anise, licorice, Sambuca . . . all have the unfortunate trait of setting off my gag reflex.

Fennel at your peril, kbobam . . . shudder

Huh! That's interesting!

It makes me think fennel might be kind of like cilantro.

As far as that thing where some people love it and some

people have an almost violent aversion to it.

I only like it and its relatives in tiny amounts. It grows wild all around this area. Always have a big sack of the seeds on the boat when sturgeon fishing. You rub your hands in the seeds before baiting up. Gets rid of people stink and anise and fennel are a fish attractant . Things you can learn on a marble board are amazing(LOL)

Thanks, guys!

I almost made the mistake of giving my new restaurant one of those traditional

hoity-toity British-pub-sounding names like 'The Gilded Lily' or 'The Homburged Hound'.

But now it's definitely going to be 'The Slurp 'n' Burp'! :D

So I went to friend for Thanksgiving dinner. It was prime rib with all the fixins. His mother mentioned how well the rib bones boiled up for a great base for Minestrone soup. I brought the bones home and they simmered all night. Got a bit carried away. This morning was spent vegetable and noodle shopping. Prescutta,Olive oil, fresh garlic, red onion,white beans, baby corn, green beans,celery, snap peas,cabbage, zucchini,kale, Ditalini and Small elbow noodles, and various seasonings. I can't wait to try it
