March is National Frozen Food Month  – Creative Ways to Use Frozen Cranberries

Again, we want to take a moment to thank everyone—healthcare professionals, first responders, grocery workers, and other essential employees—who have been working tirelessly during the COVID-19 pandemic.
As many of us are social distancing at home, most are cooking more than ever before. Some are cleaning out the pantry or freezer and wondering what to do with certain items. If you heeded our advice last fall and stocked your freezer full of fresh cranberries, we’ve got you covered on the inspiration front! (This also applies if you recently grabbed a bag of frozen cranberries at your local grocer.)
Cooking with cranberries is a fun and easy way to incorporate unique flavor, color and variety into meals. Frozen cranberries can often be used in recipes that call for fresh without even having to thaw. Some simple ways to use frozen cranberries include:
    • Blend into smoothies
    • Make your own cranberry sauce (and then see our post regarding cranberry sauce uses)
    • Make sweet or savory salsa
    • Roast with winter squash, sweet potatoes or in a roasted cranberry and butternut squash soup
    • Mix into muffins, pancakes and breads
    • Bake into cakes or cookies
    • Pair with apples or pears in a fruit tart
    • Float on top of a cranberry margarita, sangria, mimosa, or skewer a few with a toothpick to garnish other cocktails
America’s Original Superfruit® offers big health benefits in a tiny package, including unique polyphenols not commonly found in other fruits. A serving of fresh or frozen cranberries contains fiber (1.8 g), Vitamin C (7 mg), Vitamin A (31.5 IU) and many other nutrients. All forms of cranberry are sodium free, fat free and cholesterol free.
