Nutritious, delicious and versatile, cranberries add so much to any recipe. This unique berry’s culinary history goes back to the Native Americans who used fresh and dried cranberries for cooking and medicinal purposes. The Pilgrims baked them into breads and pies, and New England sailors took them on long voyages to prevent scurvy.
Cranberries are now recognized for their superfruit qualities. Packed with antioxidants, unique proanthocyanidins and vitamins, adding fresh or dried cranberries to any dish makes it more healthy.
