I freeze many packages of cranberries when they are in season, to use throughout the year. After Thanksgiving and Christmas they usually are on sale for about 1/2 the price.

Of course, I prefer them fresh but frozen certainly is better than the canned ones. I love to make cranberry sauce to serve with pork and chicken, all year.

I mentioned on an earlier thread that I liked pumpkin in my oatmeal. Sometimes I use cranberry which I mix with some orange juice and zest...a bit of sugar also. The tartness of the berries is very good with the oatmeal.

I have lots of wierd oatmeal combinations.

Why are you screaming it? Please don't use all caps. That's cyber-screaming. It hurts!

Not a lot of choices in your poll. I use them [i]always[/i[ during the holidays, and sometimes during the rest of the season. They're the Official State Fruit of Massachusetts, and when I lived and catered in Boston, I offered lots of dishes with cranberries during the Autumn. I won a prize for my Cranberry Creme Brulee.....

I eat cranberry stuff whenever I can. More than monthly, but less than once/day.

June, your creme brulee a la cranberries sounds wonderful!

I love crans! They are my favorite part of the holiday feasts. Even though I love them, I voted for "during the holidays". I don't eat them often enough to vote for once a month. One of these days, we'll move into a house with a garage where we can have an extra freezer. When that day comes, I will load the freezer full of cranberries. I think I saw some cranberries in the store recently, maybe I'll make some muffins or something.

chefjune, I had a aunt that had to use caps because of eyesite and someone came in to the forum and asked her the same thing, why are you screaming??. She was so hurt she quit the forum and sadly,their loss. Why is it so important not to use CAPS?There are some people I notice that use them and it does not bother me. In fact I can see their message better also.
As far as cranberries go I use them at holiday time and a few times in between for breads and muffins.

I'm not into cranberries at all. I tried them in all different combinations: game, turkey, deserts,... and I realy don't like any of them. So I've given up on them and serve my game and turkey with other fruits and veggies.
