I need to consult a cranberry expert (you!). My Granny makes the best cranberry salad. She has a manual grinder that she clamps onto the table and then grinds up a bunch of cranberries, apples, and oranges. My Mom makes it too but uses a Cuisinart. Granny claims that the Cuisinart pulverizes the seeds of the cranberries, thereby making the salad bitter, which her woman-powered, trusty, old grinder does not do. Could this be true? Are the seeds of the cranberry bitter when they are ground up?????
Well Sarah, I am not one to argue with Grandma but I haven’t noticed that cranberries become bitter after a trip through the food processor. If you have a food mill you could try that, but honestly I think it will be okay in the food processor. If you try, let me know!
