CG, you can freeze fresh cranberries is you wish to make your own English muffins. I have been doing it for years. My daughter loves cranberry breads. Any kind. When I was doing a lot of baking, I used to make the English muffins all the time. Or I would make a loaf of muffin bread for her to slice herself for toasting. I miss baking. It is my favorite part of cooking for my kids. Unfortunately, as we have all aged, breads have become a lesser part of all our diets. Fewer calories for everyone.

In Italy, and in general around most of the Mediterranean, bread is a very important staple, and buying it's ok if it's for a family, but it's just my husband and me. and that's why I started making my own - the bread goes stale very quickly, and is then only good for making breadcrumbs for frying. In Italy it is generally never thrown away because of the religious connotations. You can only put so much of it to other uses, and that's why I do my own, always have some in the freezer just in case, and always have homemade breadcrumbs for frying on hand for whan it comes in handy.
