Beyond the Can – Creative Uses for Cranberry Sauce

First and foremost we hope that everyone reading this is staying healthy and safe. We want to extend a tremendous amount of gratitude to all of the healthcare professionals, first responders, grocery workers, and other essential employees who are on the front lines during this pandemic.
As the nation follows social distancing and #StayAtHome orders, many are cooking more than ever before. At-home chefs may find they are reaching into the dark recesses of the pantry to see what they have on hand before making that next grocery store run. Some of you are unearthing dust-covered cans of cranberry sauce left over from November and wondering, “What can I do with this?”
Well, we’re here to tell you that cranberry sauce doesn’t need to be relegated to the holidays, or even to side-dish status. Cranberries are a bold fruit that add flavor, color and texture to sweet and savory dishes, and there are many delicious year-round uses for America’s Original Superfruit® (in a can).

Some simple ways to use cranberry sauce include:

    • Blend into smoothies
    • Use as a spread on toast or sandwiches
    • Layer with yogurt or ice cream for parfait
    • Freeze into popsicles
    • Stir into oatmeal
    • Incorporate into baked goods
    • Top grilled or smoked meats
    • Mix with cheese for a quesadilla filling
    • Add to barbeque sauce for a tangy twist to traditional flavor

Cranberries are a nutrient-dense food and offer unique polyphenols not commonly found in other fruits. Cranberry sauce, like all cranberry products, is sodium free, fat free and cholesterol free.

The following are some of our favorites featuring cranberry sauce, but our database contains hundreds of other delicious ideas on how to incorporate all cranberry products into your meals.
