I always add a handful to my oatmeal in the morning, along with brown sugar, cream, and cinnamon. The cranberries really make a difference.
I also make orange/cranberry biscotti with pistachios. Great addition since cranberries and oranges are a natural combination.

Adding dried cranberries to a spinach salad along with thinly sliced apples, pecans or walnuts, mandarin orange slices and poppyseed dressing is absolutely terrific.

Dried cranberries are great in salads. Throw them on top of some mixed greens, drizzle with balsamic and sprinkle some goat cheese on top and you've got a nice salad. I also use dried cranberries in oatmeal cookies and I also recently made a cranberry, ginger and white chocolate cookie that was awesome.

I also liked dried cranberries chopped and put in chicken salad.
Sprinkle some on your cereal or oatmeal.

Add some to a smoothie.

How could I have forgotten about the oatmeal cookies and chicken salad? I just posted my recipe on another thread.

I substitute cranberries for the raisins in oatmeal cookies. Much, much better.

Like kadesma, I use them in couscous. I also like to use them in stuffing for Cornish hens, along with the bread cubes, pineapple and coconut. Really tasty.

Cheers,
I saw my boss put some on meat and sauce with vegetables. I can't tell which kind of meat and sauce it was, but maybe someone knows what I'm talking about.

Strawberry-Cranberry relish with some soft mild cheese and pastry! Just rehydrate the cranberries and add some fresh or frozen strawberries with the crans to a blender along with some lemon (or lime) juice and a little white wine and mint. Awesome!

Or you can make a cream reduction and add the crans to the cream along with some salt, pepper and liquor (cognac or grand marnier are my favs.) Serve the sauce with chicken, pork, duck, or venison.

All of those uses are so yummy that your ginormous bag may be gone by now (I've bought those same bags from Costco, as well). I saw a recipe in my Cooking Light book that uses them in rice krispie treats along with toasted pumpkin seeds. 1/4 cup of butter in the whole 9x13 pan, and if you like those retro desserts, it will kill a cup o' those cranberries for you! I made some the other day and everyone from husband on down to grandson loved them. They are gone.
