    I too LOVE cranberries and was disappointed to discover that they cannot be found year-round here in Oklahoma. So I buy extra between October and December and freeze them for year round use!!

    I make muffins, of my own design. My daughter used to call them "Good for you Muffins" The recipe is:

    1 1/3 c. flour
    1 1/3 c. rolled oats
    1 tsp baking powder
    1 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp cinnamon or fresh nutmeg

    1 c. unsweetened applesauce
    1/2 c. brown sugar
    1/2 c. milk
    1 egg
    3 TBSP oil
    2 tsp pure vanilla
    zest of one navel orange

    about 1 1/2 c. roughly chopped cranberries. (I keep frozen til I use them.)
    about 1 c. walnuts, broken by hand (larger pieces)

    Preheat oven to 375.
    I grease and flour my muffin tins as well, as these do not have alot of fat in them.

    Stir together dry ingredients and walnut in large bowl
    Mix wet ingredients in smaller bowl with a whisk or fork.
    Mix together and add cranberries at the end.

    Bake for about 20 minutes.

    These are chewy and dense, NOT like bakery muffins. They stick with you and are little bundles of complex carbs and anti-oxidants. Plus, they taste really good.

    I have a fantastic recipe for Cranberry nut bread - without the orange - (I don't like orange and cranberry). I use walnuts and I don't smoosh them. So when you bite into the tart cranberry and get a big chunk of walnut - well, lady, you are in Bog heaven!!!!!
    PM me if you would like the recipe! Edie

    I make cranberry liqueur. It is a beautiful color and a great drink over ice! You do have to start it a month or so in advance. It is SO YUMMY!

    That I would love the recipe for unless it is a family secret, which I would certainly understand. But here in the hinterlands, it would probably keep us from freezing to death come Winter. Edie

    PS - I wonder how that would be over vanilla ice cream!

    I'd be happy to share the recipe! It is great over ice cream. Also for a lighter drink, I mix it will ginger ale/sparkling water...a grown up soda. It does make a nice gift..put in a pretty bottle. A beautiful deep cranberry color.

    Let me find it and I will post it. Hope you enjoy.

    Cranberry Liqueur

    2 cups sugar
    1 cup water
    16 oz. bag of fresh cranberries
    3 cups vodka

    Boil sugar and water together, until sugar dissolves. Cool. Chop the fresh cranberries in a food processor. You want the cranberries to all be chopped so I usually do it in batches.
    Pour the sugar syrup and cranberries into a large container. I usually use a large rubbermaid pitcher. Add vodka and mix. This needs to be gently stirred/shaken often...daily, if I remember. I store mine in a closet or garage (somewhere dark and cool). Usually give it a month to mellow before I strain out the solids and decant. I strain it several times...1st using cheesecloth or a strainer to remove actual berries (twist and squeeze so you get all the liquids out). Then paper towels/coffee filter to get the smaller bits.

    You can add citrus peel if you like (lime, orange or lemon) when you make this. Use a mid-value vodka. No need to buy the most expensive. Also found this link to a cranberry cake, using the strained cranberry solids.

    Any questions..just ask!

    Add dried cranberries to frozen green beans and stir fry lightly. This combination was in a TV dinner and I use it often. Green beans need a little dressing up.

    And don't forget about craisins!!!!!! Any recipe that calls for raisins, gets substituted by craisins in my house. I also include them in my Thanksgiving stuffing. Yum!!!!

    Those who take blood thinner beware. The new info sheet says stay away from cranberry products.

    Oh....my 2nd favorite fruit after pears! Craisins on my cereal every morning. You can find tons of recipes at Ocean Spray's website. Try the Craisin White Chocolate Oatmeal cookies. Have made my own cranberry sauce for decades.....just cook, put in jars and freeze and a warm cranberry almond bread is great with tea.

    This is absolutely fabulous. I make it as long as I can still get cranberries. DH and I put it on pancakes, hot cereal, french toast or as an ice cream or yogurt topping. Yuuuuummmmmmm!
    It is an Ina Garten original recipe.



    Cranberry Sauce Barefoot Contessa


    Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
    -------- ------------ --------------------------------
    12 ounces fresh cranberries -- cleaned
    1 3/4 cups sugar
    1 Granny Smith apple -- peeled, cored, and chopped
    1 orange -- zest grated and juiced
    1 lemon -- zest grated and juiced
    3/4 cup raisins
    3/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

    Cook the cranberries, sugar, and 1 cup of water in a saucepan over low heat for about 5 minutes, or until the skins pop open. Add the apple, zests, and juices and cook for 15 more minutes. Remove from the heat and add the raisins and nuts. Let cool, and serve chilled.

    Note: I use Splenda rather than sugar for this recipe. Also, any variety of apple works.

    I add rough chopped cranberries to my zucchini bread, which has crushed pineapple and pecans in it. Yummy!

    We live not too far from some commercial cranberry farms, so I buy them by the pound and freeze them in 2 cup packages for later use.

    I love dried cranberries also, but aren't they all sweetened?

    We tried a new Christmas Treat last year. It was so good that I had to make another batch.

    Cranberry Pistachio Bark
    1 block white almond bark, melted according to pkg
    mix pistachios and craisins into bark (ever how much you want). Spread out on cookie sheet that has been covered in parchment paper. Let it set up then break into chunks and seal in zip lock bag.

    Makes great gifts as well.

    One cup chopped eggs
    One cup bacon bits
    One cup shredded cheese
    One cup cranberries. To that you add Ranch Style Dressing and I throw in some thinly sliced onion chopped to give it a kick. Almost any combination fruit will work and put crumbled Town House pretzel crackers on top.

    Hi Crafty.
    I make cold slaw :shredded cabbage,mayonaise, dried cranberries,salt and peper. My grand kids love it. Sometimes I add pinapple as well but just the cranberries are just enough.

    Try something else too.
    cut a red grape in half and insert 1/2 a small cherry tomato inside and put it into a salad. YumYum.

    Enjoy.........
