    The instructions do indeed specify:  "First woman should cast into the reel 
    by pulling back her right shoulder."
    The instructions also include an explanation of the name...the color of the 
    ball gown of the woman to whom it was dedicated on a particular occasion.

    Yes, first woman does cast into the reel.  Our little Reno group dances 
    Cranberry Tart a lot, as we often use it in our demos.  The music we use for 
    it is a 4-times through jig done by Bobby Brown on his Scottish Country 
    Dance album.  Track #6 seems to have the right feel for this dance.  It's a 
    delightful dance - easy enough for most and fun to dance.
