It’s the time of year that cranberries make their appearance in sauces, cookies, and more.

When choosing berries, look for dark red, plump berries.  Avoid berries that are shriveled or soft.

Since cranberries are often sold in bags you may not be able to pick over individual berries, so look for bags that have the highest number of healthy berries.

Cranberries keep in the refrigerator for up to one month, and in the freezer for up to one year, so stock up!

Cranberries are packed with nutrients, so eat up for a healthy snack, or use them in holiday recipes!
