My friend Craig was not able to visit us this year, but he sent a terrific care package that included a HUGE bag of Ocean Spray Craisins. These are foreign objects here. There are no cranberries in Brazil – except for the ridiculously expensive R$15 per half liter juice boxes of imported cranberry juice (from concentrate).
Craisins – remember those? I’ve been having a lot of fun incorporating them into recipes. My now-famous Panatone bread recipe is inclusive of craisins. And today I made a batch of oatmeal craisin cookies. Mmmmmm.
Have a look.
