The Circular Ripples Of Kunta's Cranberry Achaar
Posted by Jyoti on Nov 10, 2017
As I have taken to making home-made yogurt after having that at the Santa Clara circles, I decided to also try my hand at making the cranberry achaar. I shared some of the achaar I made with one of my neighbors.
Yesterday, I was happy to find that it is cranberry season again. I brought home a bag to make the traditional Thanksgiving cranberry sauce which is the only thing I knew to make with cranberries. My neighbor called me over to join them for dinner. After dinner, as her husband took their two year old for bath-time, she brought out a bag of cranberries and said, "Can you show me how to make cranberry achaar?" I had completely forgotten about ever having made the achaar or that I had shared it with her that one time two years ago. I was pleasantly surprised that she remembered it and delighted that she reminded me of it. We worked together in the kitchen and before the baby finished his bath, we made our own version of Kunta's Cranberry achaar. I will be making another batch with the cranberries I have at home, and will find another neighbor who I can share it with. Thank you Kunta, Harshida didi, Awakin circles, conversations, sharing and cranberries. What one gives, gives back. Ripples are fun and lift all they touch.
