Mrs. Cubbison’s Fruit & Nut pieces combine crunchy nuts and sweet dried cranberries, and make the perfect addition to salads, oatmeal, yogurt and this sweet and tasty cherry sauce. Mix it all up in a GoodCook 3 qt Mixing Bowl, featuring an ergonomic handle designed to help you mix and pour, and a spout for easy pouring.
