The Churn: Cranberries and More

Becca Dilley / Heavy Table

Our editor takes to MPR to talk cranberries with Tom Crann (see also: our collection of holiday cranberry dishes, cranberry-infused vodka, our trip to Wetherby Cranberry Company, and Becca Dilley’s cranberry bog trash-the-dress fashion shoot). A story and recipe about catfish boudin sausages inspired by those at Butcher & the Boar. Jason DeRusha shares a bushel of local holiday restaurant gift card deals. Milwaukee’s (regionally) legendary Alterra Coffee Company is opening its first cafe in Madison. And check out everything we’ve got poppin’ on Pinterest (cranberry-related or otherwise).
