Cranberry Recipes

Cranberry bushes are low, sweeping bushes or vines that bear fruit. The fruit is a berry, which starts off as white in colour but then deepens to a dark red over time. Cranberries are sweet, yet tart, and they are perfect for making into jams and sauces, although they are also juiced and dried to release sweeter flavours from the fruits. In Britain, cranberries are traditionally eaten throughout the holiday season, although the juice is drank all year round. Elsewhere in the world, cranberries are eaten more regularly throughout the year, although America and Canada also serve lots of cranberries throughout the holiday season. Take a look below for some wonderful cranberry recipes, including a very simple cranberry sauce, cranberry and white chocolate bars, and a cranberry cheesecake recipe.

About Cranberries:

The most common way that cranberries are served and cooked is in the form of a cranberry sauce, usually served up with poultry of some description during Christmastime. Many people actually forget that cranberries are a sweet treat, and so will only serve them up with savoury foods — but cranberries are also perfect for using in place of other berries such as raspberries and blackberries.

Raw cranberries and cranberry juice are both often referred to as superfoods, due to their antioxidant levels and their nutrient levels. Cranberry juice, in particular, has been known to help rid people of infection and is also thought to offer some level of protection against infection. Cranberry juice can be a little boring on its own, however — so why not try it in a cocktail? Take a look at our cranberry martini recipe for some inspiration.

We also have a cranberry cocktail recipe that uses up leftover cranberry sauce, as well as a lovely recipe for using up dried cranberries — cranberry and feta couscous salad. For sweet lovers, we also have a pear and cranberry recipe, a cranberry and oat cookie recipe and a cranberry bread recipe.
