FreshDirect’s First Annual #FDFriendsgiving

Thanksgiving is all about giving gratitude, breaking bread, and passing the gravy! This year, we wanted to share one of our favorite holidays with our friends at Food52, Tasting Table, Modern Farmer, DailyBurn and @NYC. While we can celebrate heartily on our own, it’s always more fun with your pals. We asked each friend to bring their favorite dish to our #FDriendsgiving and then share the recipe so that we can share it with all of you!

Our Trip to a Local Cranberry Bog

It’s always such a joy to join the merchant teams on their #freshadventures, where they meet amazing farmers, ranchers, fishermen, and producers. Just recently, I had the thrill of joining the produce team on their visit to Pine Barrens Native Fruits, a fifth-generation cranberry farm in southern New Jersey.

Brenda, the bog’s owner, and Tom, the bog’s right-hand-man, gave us an extensive tour of the farm, which has been in the family since the mid-1800s and was founded by Brenda’s husband’s Great-Aunt Lizzy White.
