Cranberry Recipes

With Thanksgiving fast approaching, I thought it would be fun to share some cranberry recipes. If you’ve never cooked with fresh cranberries you are in for a treat. That’s right, cranberries aren’t just for juice. They are a versatile, fun and festive ingredient that’s packed with antioxidants and fiber. And they are only 25 calories for half a cup! So, don’t you think it’s about time you take a fresh look at those cranberries!

Today’s blogger cranberry recipe comes from Denise at RunDMT. She’s found a use for your leftover cranberry sauce. Denise is a Tampa Bay marathon mom on the run. In her spare time, she founded Tampa Bay Bloggers. If you don’t have a cranberry sauce recipe, don’t worry. Just check out Lane’s Tequila Jalapeno Cranberry recipe.

Here are some other fun cranberry recipes to try:

And yes, we have fresh cranberries available at the market now. Remember, we’ll be closing around 3 pm on Wednesday before Thanksgiving. We’ll be closed on Thursday for Thanksgiving but will reopen Friday normal hours (9am to 6 pm). Enjoy!

How about you? Not only is acorn squash a great source of Folate and Vitamins  (B-6, C and A), squash is full of the antioxidant beta carotene .
