What else do you do with fresh cranberries?

Hi, all. I bought a bag of cranberries last weekend and will make cranberry sauce today, but it's just DH and I so I'm going to use only half the bag. What else do you all do with fresh cranberries besides make cranberry sauce or relish?

I would imagine making a jam or jelly, drying some out (crasins), and maybe even a cranberry nut bread or muffins could work.

Cranberry chutney or salsa is tasty. Or sauce for game.

Oh, I love to put them into a basic muffin batter! The tartness and juiciness make for a really nice contrast to the sweet softness of the muffin!

pop some pop corn and then string it and the cranberries on some heavy string and use it as decoration. I put it on the Christmas tree.
