Cranberry Dill Dip

Alice Hoffman wrote in the book The Blackbird House, “the first cranberries came to earth in the beak of a dove, then heaven was red and the memory of paradise could be plucked from shrubs in sandy bogs and marshes.” From mid-September through the holidays, cranberries reach their peak flavor. These tart fruit can be found in recipes ranging from sweet to savory. Cranberries are uniquely festive. We all need easy recipes at the holidays that can be thrown together quickly. Three ingredients. One rule - use FRESH not dried dill. Make this dip the night before so that the flavors meld.
