BLOOMFIELD, NJ -  Bloomfield resident Jenn Stilwell's cranberry jelly recipe is now the worst kept secret in the township.

Stilwell's jelly has been the subject of a great deal of chatter in town over the past few days. Then on Sunday afternoon. local business leader Izabela Van Tassel declared it "the best." Within hours, under cover of darkness, in a scene right out of 'All the President's Men,' a container of Stilwell's cranberry jelly was passed on to TAPinto Bloomfield. Without even having to file an OPRA request, TAPinto Bloomfield obtained the recipe for the citizenry.
