A Bag of Squishy Cranberries

I must have taken them out of the freezer around Christmastime and forgot about them in the fridge. So, they're a little squishy, but not rotten-squishy, if you know what I mean.

What do you guys think I should do with them? Make one of those jello things? Or do you have a more interesting idea?

Yummy, cranberries. How about:

Mix them in with cream cheese as a spread on crackers or as a dip

Cranberry Chicken or Ribs - Put them in a slow cooker or bake

Cranberry muffins/bread

Cranberry Vodka/shooters?

Add to a turkey/chicken salad, greens (spinach), shrooms, red onions, croutons

Cranberry Pork Roast

Topping for waffles, pancakes, french toast

Cranberry turkey/chicken roll ups in tortillas with Russian dressing

Cranberry meatloaf topping - or mix them in with ground beef for a meat or turkey loaf

Pour them in ice cube trays w some Sprite

thanks loads, mish. you've given me some great ideas. I've done the bread to death, so I'm thinking either the crockpot with some chicken (what else in it?) or the dip or as a topping for those potato latke waffles that you gave me the recipe for.

i have a porkroast recipe for the crock with cranberries - i suppose you can use chicken too - very easy - 1/2 c chicken broth, 1/4 c cranberry juice, cranberries, orange zest - after meat is done, heat juices stovetop with 1/4 c cranberry juice mixed with cornstarch - very tasty, a family favorite.

my favorite suggestion so far: vodka cranberry shooters!

What a cool idea, mud... a topping for potato pancakes. Thank you.

Haven't tried this yet, but maybe add some dry onion/mushroom soup mix, garlic powder, sliced green peppers, sliced onions, maybe chunks o pineapple at the end and serve the sauce over rice. I have seen some recipes w cranberry sauce, onion soup (dry) and Russian dressing in a crockpot. Not sure what the taste would be like. Whatever you got around da house. Or, just thought of, cranberry chicken wings or meatballs. (Mental note to self - buy cranberries - squishy or not ) Thanks Mud, for giving me some ideas too.

Edited to add: How about stirring em into some vanilla ice cream?

I can see, the two Michel(l)e's here think alike. BTW, saving that pork recipe. Thank you.

Well, you know vanilla ice cream is one of my favorite platforms for other stuff - think I'd have to grind the berries up w/some sugar first, tho.

I was thinking the chicken (thx for other ingredients) over rice too. MM - yours sounds pretty tasty too.

I'm a-hankerin' after those waffles, tho. Might have to try that first........... Maybe as a side for the chicken?

Me too, Mud. You just reminded me... think I've heard of chicken waffles...maybe with some cranberries? - or waffles, ice cream & cranberries, or have I gone to the well once too often?
