Cranberries! One of the World’s Healthiest Foods!
Cranberries are in season! While cranberries are traditionally thought of as a holiday food, they are SO good for you, you can make them a part of your eating all year long! When it comes to disease fighting, they are one of the world’s healthiest foods!!!
Want to enjoy organic cranberrries all year long? Get some extra while they are in season and store them in your freezer! Fresh ripe cranberries can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 20 days. Frozen cranberries can be kept in the freezer all year! To freeze, spread the cranberries out on a baking sheet and place in the freezer. In a couple of hours, transfer the cranberries to a freezer bag or container.
Want to incorporate cranberries into your diet more often? HERE are some recipes for cranberry smoothies!!
