If you had been an early-nineteenth-century gourmet out for a stroll along the Strand, you might well have been tempted to purchase a jar of Cape Cod Bell cranberries. This great delicacy was sold then for the princely sum of four shillings. Hooray for today when bags of bright, fresh cranberries are available at a fraction of the price! A light sponge cake covered with tart, sugared cranberries is a refreshing dinner party dessert and a perfect way to enjoy these very special berries.
