Cape Cod Apple Cranberry Pie

Both cranberries and apples are rich in pectins. Pectins can help the digestive system. For diarrhea, one of the leading medications for this problem, Kaopectate, used pectin as one its main "active" ingredients, though the ingredients changed in 2002.

A Byte of Cranberry History

"Black Monday," November 9, 1959: On this day, the Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare announced that cranberries from the Northwest had been found contaminated with a weed killer. Though later the government declared that 99 percent of the nation's crop was untainted, the Secretary said that his family would do without the berries at their Thanksgiving meal. Most Americans chose to make the same sacrifice.
