Summary

This historical look at New England’s favorite fruit “ends up capturing the essence of the time period and place”—from the authors of A History of Chowder (Edible South Shore).   New Englanders know that cranberries are not for holidays alone. For centuries, this tart fruit—a staple in the Yankee diet since before it was domesticated—has reigned over the cranberry heartland of Barnstable and Plymouth Counties, Massachusetts. Dozens of recipes that utilize the “humble fruit” have risen up over the years, the most popular being cranberry sauce, which one imaginative New Englander paired with lobster. The popularity of the berry exploded in the 1840s, and despite occasional setbacks such as the great pesticide scare of 1959, demand continues to rise to this day. Authors Robert S. Cox and Jacob Walker trace the evolution of cranberry culture in the Bay State, exploring the delectable history of this quintessential New England industry.   Includes photos!

    Coffee represents a cultural movement that reached its peak during the first decade of the 2000s and reinvented itself in multiple opportunities to maintain its leading role in today's culture. These innovation processes have transformed coffee from a typical artisanal cup of dark, bitter, and hot liquid to a worldwide industry. Nowadays, coffee is usually mixed with spices, liquors, dairy products, and more. Coffee has taken its status as a social beverage to the next level and has made its way into international gastronomy. Although that classic cup of black coffee continues to be a sought-after item, in most establishments specializing in this beverage, a cup of coffee is a work of visual and gustatory art, made by professionals in the field, known as baristas. Coffee has become a powerful industry, and one of its most recent allies is cannabis. 
    The Cannabis industry, on the other hand, has been present in the human culture for millennia, though it had an abrupt interruption at the beginning of the 20th century when classified as an illegal narcotic due to its psychoactive properties. With the availability of new medical research technologies and the progressive easing of use restrictions, both medicinal and recreational, the spotlight is on cannabis as a substance with multiple beneficial effects for health in general. However, this plant should be used with caution, given the absence of knowledge regarding its effects on our organism. 
    In this audiobook, we explore the link between cannabis and caffeine and those areas of the nervous system impacted by these substances, and the possible effects that could arise from their interaction in the body. Likewise, we will go through the benefits and risks that this combination could bring. Finally, you will learn some anecdotes from users and the homemade ways of preparing this combination of Cannabis and coffee. Join us to explore the exciting link between the two!
