Cranberry Stuffing

Russ Myers


This vegetarian dish brightens up the table with flecks of pink and red cranberries scattered throughout the stuffing.

The smaller cranberry's botanical name, vaccinium oxycoccos, comes from the Latin vacca, meaning cow because cows seem to be very fond of them. Oxycoccos refers to the sharp leaves of the plant. This variety is primarily known in Europe. In North America, the large berry variety is V. macrocarpon, from macro which means large oval leaves.
