Chances are most of us have eaten cranberries in cranberry sauce, but what else can you do with these berries and their juice?
Make a drink:
Fill a glass ½ full with soda water or carbonated water and the rest of the way with cranberry juice, or cran-apple juice. Top with a few fresh cranberries. You can also add a dash of orange juice if you would like to.
Make a snack:
Ants on a log: Cut a stalk of celery into 3 pieces. Add peanut butter to each piece. Top with dried cranberries…red ants on a log!
Mix together: 1 block of cream cheese, 1 cup walnuts (chopped), 1 cup dried cranberries and add to a stalk of celery. This will fill about 12 celery stalks. Cut each in half and serve as a tasty appetizer.
Bake with them:
Add 1 cup of dried cranberries to your oatmeal cookie dough.
Add to pancake batter or on top of pancakes or french toast.
Garnish your cakes with them:
In a bowl, beat pasteurized egg whites until light. Dip fresh cranberries into the whites then coat them with sugar. Let them dry and use them to decorate your baked goods.
Melt a bag of chocolate chips. Add 1 cup of dried cranberries. Spread onto a no-stick foil lined cookie sheet. Refrigerate until hard. Crack apart into pieces.
Warm cran-apple juice and some ground cinnamon... makes a great quick cider!
Decorate with them:
String dried cranberries and popcorn on a string and decorate your Christmas tree or house.Need more ideas? Buy this book...
