It’s small, red or white, filled with antioxidants, and, bizarrely, is harvested by flooding its fields… it’s the cranberry!
HOW TO CHOOSE THEM
When purchasing fresh cranberries, make sure they are firm and shiny because shrivelled berries are unfit for consumption.
HOW TO STORE THEM
Fresh cranberries can be stored in the refrigerator for several weeks or in the freezer for more than a year, but should only be rinsed when ready to be used.
HOW TO EAT THEM
Cranberries are the well-known sidekicks of the Christmas and Thanksgiving turkey, but they can be used in all manner of sauces.
For an appetizer, serve in chutney on bite-sized snacks or as a topping for melted brie to be shared.
In mains, they are great in a turkey stuffing or as a sauce to accompany white meat.
For dessert, use them in an apple crumble or Black Forest cake to delight all your guests.
Finally, complement your favourite punch or sangria with these little red berries for a festive touch!
