Sherry talks about how merchants played a role in Thanksgiving preparations. She also talks about the tradition of early shopping!
She also shares another "side of Allie Earp."
In honor of Thanksgiving, Sherry is sharing this recipe for cranberry sauce.
2 cups water
4 cups fresh cranberries
2 orange peels
2 cups sugar
1/2 juice of an orange
Bring the water, cranberries, and orange peel to a boil in a large pot. Continue to boil until the skins of the berries have broken. At that point, add the sugar and orange juice and reduce the heat to simmer for 5 to 10 minutes. Chill before serving.
