75 Fresh Cranberry Recipes Roundup

Fresh Cranberry Recipe Roundup | 75 recipes from sweet to savory! | Find them at www.mealplanningmagic.com #12wksxmastreats

Thanksgiving may be over but for me, cranberry season has just kicked off! I love to buy the big bags of fresh cranberries at Sam’s Club or Costco and keep some in the freezer year round so I can enjoy dishes and sweet treats made with fresh cranberries.

Did you know that you can freeze whole, fresh cranberries? Yes, you can! No special preparation is necessary. Just put them in a freezer save container or bag, label and throw them in the freezer. Sometimes I freeze them in the bag they came in but it’s probably best if you transfer them to a freezer safe bag or container. They will keep for up to a year (or more but that’s not official. :-) )


So, with all those cranberries, I’ve asked some blogger friends to share their favorite cranberry recipes to include in this fresh cranberry recipes roundup for this week’s 12 Weeks of Christmas Treats! Wow! I had no idea how many different ways there are to cook and bake with cranberries–there are a lot of new-to-me ideas that I can’t wait to try out. I hope you’ll give some of these a try too. I’m kicking off the roundup with a couple of cranberry recipes from my own blog here, Meal Planning Magic. Enjoy!
