What do you do with Fresh Cranberries?

Impress the family at Thanksgiving!

Fresh, local cranberries are here and if you’re like me, you don’t exactly know what to do with them. This isn’t exactly the type of berry you hand to the kids in a little baggie to snack on after school. So, what do you do with it?

I found a quick recipe in healthnotes that you can access through our Web site http://www.valleynaturalfoods.com/resources.shtml. Now you can impress the family with fresh and not canned cranberry sauce this Thanksgiving.

Cranberry Sauce

3 cups of cranberries

1 1/2 cups of sugar

3/4 cup of water

Simmer cranberries and water together. While simmering, mash with potato masher. Add sugar; simmer for 10 more minutes, stirring occasionally. Put into container and refrigerate. Makes about 2 cups of sauce.
