Quick facts on Cranberries:

For the best buy choose fresh cranberries that are clean and firm with a dark red color, not soft or wrinkled. To prepare fresh cranberries, sort to remove stems and damaged cranberries, and rinse in running water just before using. To store fresh cranberries, keep them in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks. If you don’t use them right away, put the whole bag right in the freezer. Cranberries contain vitamin C, which is good for fighting colds and healing cuts.

Different ways to incorporate cranberries into your diet:

  • Use dried cranberries in oatmeal, or as a snack.
  • Use fresh or frozen cranberries in sauces, relishes, or muffins.
  • Mix orange juice with cranberry juice for a refreshing change at breakfast.
