Fresh Cranberry Recipes

Cranberries Coming Out of Your Ears?


Every year I inevitably buy too many bags of fresh cranberries in an effort to prepare for any potential Thanksgiving problems. I end up with way too many cranberries and nothing to do with them. But just because Thanksgiving is over doesn't mean we can't still appreciate that tart little berry, right? Fresh cranberries typically appear in grocery stores from October through December. That gives us three whole months to enjoy them! So before you toss that poor bag of fresh cranberries, think outside the box a little and use them up! From cranberry vodka to cranberry sorbet (or cranberry sorbet topped with cranberry vodka – how's that for cranberry appreciation?), here are five things to do with cranberries, even when it's not Thanksgiving.

  • Keep it simple and whip up a zesty cranberry sauce (like the one you'd serve at Thanksgiving) but instead of serving it with turkey, spread it on toast or crepes!
  • Make your own cranberry vodka and serve it at your next cocktail party! Your guests will be beyond impressed.
