Aprons make great gifts, so if you don't want one yourself, there is probably someone on your gift giving list that would love to have an apron. Not only are aprons pretty but they are practical, what more can a woman ask for? Also, you don't need to know someone's exact size to get one that will fit.

Cranberry Relish

1 2/3 cups sugar
3/4 cups water
1/2 small orange
1 12 ounce package fress cranberries, washed (3 cups)
1 3-inch cinnamon stick, broken
4 whole cloves
1/4 c. brandy or curacao liqueur (optional)
I've made it with out the brandy and it is just as good!

In a heavy sausepan, combine sugar and water. Bring to a boil and boil without stirring for 3 minutes. Finely chop orange including rind. Add orange, cranberries and spices to syrup. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until cranberries break, about 4 or 5 minutes.
Remove from heat and stir in optional brandy or liqueur. Cool; remove cinnamon and cloves. Ladle in sterlized containers; cover and refrigerate. Serve at room temperature.
Makes about 3 cups.

I’ve been making this recipe for years and it is always a hit.

Introducing: The Egg Gathering Apron

Do you have a few urban chickens?

A friend has a few chickens and she needed something that she could wear when gathering and feeding her chickens so I a made her an egg gathering apron.

The Chickens are more like pets so she likes to have her hands free to pet them and feed them raisins when gathering her eggs.

Her husband is modeling the apron while she took the pictures ;)

There are 5 pleated and lined pockets with elastic across the top edge so that the pockets will stay closed once the eggs are safely nestled inside.

You can get at least 2 chicken eggs in a single pocket.
So there is plenty of other pockets to stash treats for your hens and still have your hands free to carry a water pail or jug and to pet your girls.
