Cranberries. Tis the season of colour.
There’s a lot going on in Muskoka right now. Artists have opened their doors for their Studio Tour (part deux), the forest is flashing red and gold and cranberries are punctuating it all with their tart brilliance.
Tart? That depends. Cranberry butter tarts are tarts but not tart. Cranberry sorbet can make you pucker but cranberry pancakes go better with butter. If you haven’t been to the cranberry bogs in these parts, a trip is certainly worthwhile. Although our week is rainy, the weekend will be fine. The reds will be glowing wherever you look – especially in the bogs. At Johnstons’ you can jump right in too and imagine you’re in a TV commercial.
Come on up, enjoy yourself! While you’re at it, new listings are still coming to market. Take a look!
