A favorite vacation destination, Nantucket Island is a great place to visit friends, enjoy lobster and other local delights and relax. The houses all have names, usually maritime or island themed, like "Cross Rip", "House of Lords"; we rented one named "Suture Self" (a doctor, I surmise). I found an ancient community cookbook and this recipe is very loosely adapted from one in it. At one time cranberries were one of the important crops on the island. They are still harvested in September and October. —dymnyno
