Sisterly Love

Sisters.  Proud to be one.  Lucky to have not one, but two!  I love them - and truly like them.  Both are successful women in life, careers, and humanity.  The ties that bind us are deep (and a bit whacky).

New England Cranberry is the older, wiser sister to Fruitations and an exemplary brand for Fruitations to follow.  Best-selling Cranberry Pepper Jelly pairs with brie, turkey, and a slice of green apple for a sandwich that’s simply to-die-for.  And just like Fruitations, you can make a mean cocktail with Cranberry Pepper Jelly.

At Blackstrap BBQ in Winthrop, MA, our great friend Michael Ray creates hometown drinks served alongside barbecue that’s melt-in-your-mouth delicious.  The birthday cocktail he crafted for me complemented the sweet, tangy, smoky pulled pork sliders perfectly.  Sisters unite!

Happy Birthday, Baby
