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. 🙂 )
