Planning ahead, even for baking

Every now and then, Amazon lists something as being available in a month or two, but it still lets you order it. I don’t know why they do this. I find it very odd. But hey, who am I to question a good deal?

This is preface to sharing that I just ordered this 12-pack of cherry-flavored Craisins for $9.69 even though it’s not going to ship until March or April. That’s 4.5 pounds of my favorite Craisins for baking for under $10! Here’s the thing: these are perfect for Christmas baking. And those pouches can go straight into my freezer whenever they get here, and I can pull ’em out in December.

I put them in scones, I put them in cookies, I put them directly in my mouth while I’m baking because hey, it’s fruit and fruit is good for you. (Ignore the sugar. It’s fruit!) The only thing I like better than the fact that these are so cheap is that they’re also listed as “gift-wrap available.” Just in case you love someone enough to send them six pounds of dried cranberries, gift-wrapped, so as not to spoil the surprise.
