Fun and Delicious Uses for Fresh Cranberries
Cranberry season is upon us once again, and over the past month I’ve been creating recipes that feature the cranberry. Nothing replaces that fresh tartness, but dried cranberries always work in a pinch – I use them throughout the year in a variety of dishes. While there are cranberry “standards,” such as Cranberry Relish, I have a few new recipes and ideas to get your creative cranberry juices flowing for the holidays!
Fresh cranberries are available from October through December.
What to look for:
Look for bright-colored, firm cranberries, located in the produce section. Avoid bags that have brown or shriveled berries at the bottom.
How to Store:
Cranberries keep in the original packaging for up to two weeks in the refrigerator, or up to one year in the freezer.
Rinse and discard any discolored or soft berries; if frozen, there’s no need to thaw before use.
