Fresh Cranberry Recipes

Fresh cranberries are one of the first things I look for every year.

Once late October hits, I am stalking all the stores to see who is carrying them first so I can get my hands on a bag!

I never remember eating fresh cranberries growing up, and I had no idea what I was missing until a few years ago.

Fresh cranberries are so tart and juicy and wonderful for holiday baking and treats!
