What to Do With Fresh Cranberries

Let's Dish: What's Your Favorite Use of Fresh Cranberries?

It drives me nuts that fresh cranberries are only available in large bags. I often find myself up to the challenge of using any remaining fresh berries in a different application. I love them as a cocktail garnish, but Katie prefers to infuse them directly into vodka, and Lauren makes a tart mostarda. I've also heard that astringent berries do well when sugared or covered in chocolate. What do you do with fresh cranberries?

Freezing them is such a great idea. I love the concept of stirring them into yogurt!

Hey SC - I buy lots of them and keep them in the freezer, just take out what you need. I do make a lot of breads, chop them up and put in pancakes/waffles, delish in choc chip cookies, I've put them in vanilla (homemade) ice cream. They are also great on yogurt when made into a sauce. I made Rum Spiked Sauce for Thanksgiving which had lime in it, pretty tasty. Try the sauce mixed with some cream cheese and a bit of pepper on crostini; I got the idea from the strawberry arugula recipe on Yum this summer.

Both sound amazing! Guess what I'll be doing with the bag I have left over?

Cranberry salsa! You get that sweet/tart flavor thing, super fresh tasting, healthy and addicting. You can find the recipe on my blog at: http://mignardise.blogspot.com/2010/11/cranberry-salsa.html
