5 Things to do with Fresh Cranberries

riceIt’s cranberry harvest season and that means fresh cranberries should be bouncing into a grocery store near you very soon, if they haven’t already.  Be sure to stock up on fresh cranberries this fall by buying one bag for now and two for the freezer.  You can store bags of fresh cranberries for up to one year in your freezer.

Fresh cranberries are cholesterol and saturated fat free as well as very low in sodium.  They contain many nutrients including potassium, fiber and Vitamins B6, C, E and K.

To help you enjoy America’s Original Superfruit® we’ve compiled the following video recipes using fresh cranberries:

  • Cranberry Sauce
  • Cranberry Cilantro Salsa
  • Cranberry Smoothie
  • Floating Cranberry Candle Decoration
  • Sugared

You can access other fresh fruit recipes on the dedicated fresh section of our website.  And stay tuned on our @USCranberries social media channels for #FreshCranFridays beginning October 27.
