my grandma made this every year since i was a kid. when she passed away my aunt and i started making it. my grandma always used a hand grinder and it took her all day to make this because of the grinding. so when my aunt and i made it i said wonder if a food processor will work i dont have a grinder. it works wonderful so we have always said i wish we knew this before she passed away we would have bought her one for christmas. i have been making it since 2007 and its oh so good. we only get it at thanksgiving and christmas because you cant find fresh cranberries any other time of year.
