Do you make anything out of fresh cranberries?

I've made something similar to cranberry sauce. It's called cranberry compote and it has pineapple in it in addition to the cranberries. It makes a nice accompaniment with the holiday meal.

  • Yes, we grind them up with sugar and orange zest to make fresh cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving!

  • I like to make orange cranberry muffins... but also I like to juice them and drink them mixed with water at a ratio of 3w/1juice.... and I put stevia in it to sweeten it....

  • I have several recipes that call for fresh cranberries. One of my favorites is a cranberry bread which is very tasty.

  • Nope I don't like cranberries in any form so I don't make anything with them. I buy the canned cranberries for everyone else to eat. My Mom always makes fresh cranberries for Thanksgiving tho.

  • I have put them in banana bread with candied orange peel. Once I candied some fresh cranberries, but it was a ton of work.
