2. Impostors have tried to take it's place, but you can't be fooled.
3. Look at that perfect cylindrical shape!
4. Each slice is a beautiful, perfect circle.
5. It's soft and tender enough to scoop with cutlery...
6. ...yet firm and hearty enough to gently lift with your fingers.
7. Even when it's not perfect, jellied cranberry will always be there for you.
8. No Thanksgiving plate is complete without that iconic deep red tangy circle of bliss.
11. Look at that pile mystery gunk. There's just no contest.

13. It IS the garnish!
14. It will make your most hideous serving plates look like fine china.
15. It will help you with your fractions.
16. It will inspire you to create culinary works of art.
17. Also, non-culinary works of art.
18. You don't need expensive machines and hours of labor to get your cranberry fix.
19. It will never desert you.
20. But it could dessert you!
21. Oh, jellied cranberry...
22. Please never leave!
