Cranberries have increasingly become a more familiar food item. Originally, cranberries were most often served around the holiday season as part of a sauce for turkey. Now we have year-round access to frozen and sweetened, dried cranberries and seasonal access to fresh cranberries.
The popularity of baked goods containing cranberries has given us a new appreciation of the unique, tart and tangy flavor these berries produce. The harvesting season for fresh cranberries corresponds so nicely with our holiday season, making for an easy pairing between cranberries and the holidays.
When it comes to holiday baking, cranberries really shine. Added to cornbread dressing, baked in a pie, cake or muffin, cranberries add a tang and explosion of color that make any recipe special.
