AMBROSIA CRÈME CRANBERRY SCONES 

The American or large-fruited cranberry, an ingredient in these delicious scones, grows wild only on the North American continent.

It can be found along the northern portion of the US, from Maine to Wisconsin, and along the Appalachians to North Carolina. In Canada, Quebec produces 25% of the world’s commercial cranberry supply.

Early settlers wouldn’t have survived that first, harsh winter without the kind assistance of those who were indigenous to the area. 

Cranberries were introduced to settlers as part of a sustaining diet, along with corn and other crops that are now a traditional part of autumnal feasts of Thanksgiving all over North America.

During these festive times, we share moments, make memories with friends and family and love every minute of it. But, its important to take sometime for yourself, too. 

Bake a batch of these for everyone you’d like to share them with. Then, sneak one off to a quiet place and take a moment just for you. You deserve it.
