Cooking with Cranberries

These vibrant berries are magically able to add tartness and sweetness to dishes at the same time.


Top 5 Fantastic Ways To Use Cranberries More Often

1With meat and poultry

In addition to turkey, cranberry is wonderful on beef or pork tenderloin, chicken and duck. You can stuff with cooked berries or add dried versions to sauces.

2With other fruit

Cranberries are great friends with pears, apples and citrus – especially orange and lemon. Cranberry-apple sauce is wonderful with pork, and cranberry-pear compote is a delicious topping for waffles.

3In baking and desserts

Whip up some lemon or orange cranberry muffins, or add dried cranberries to brownies or chocolate cookies.

4With vegetables

Toss sweetened dried cranberries with greens in a salad, or pair with steamed beans or broccoli. Cranberries also exceptional with roasted squash. Puree them in a salad dressing for wonderful taste and colour.

5In drinks

Try making homemade cranberry juice and adding it to cocktails and smoothies – so fresh and delicious!

What to do with the leftovers

Cheesecake can be frozen and thawed for later enjoyment. Pre-slicing the cake into individual portions prior to freezing gives you the option to defrost only what you need when you need it. The delicious compote can be used with pork or turkey, or over oatmeal or ice cream.

Cranberries are good for us

In addition to being an excellent source of vitamins C and E, cranberries are packed with dietary fibre. Some research suggests they are also helpful in fighting urinary tract infections.

Matching cranberries & goat cheese

Cranberries and goat cheese are a great match because they are both tangy. They pair well in a salad, wrapped up together in phyllo pastry or mixed into a stuffing for chicken breasts. When pairing these two tart foods, balance the flavours with a drizzle of honey.
