Recipes, Uses And Benefits Of Cranberries

Dried cranberries are made by partially dehydrating fresh cranberries, a process similar to making grapes into raisins. They are popular in trail mix, salads, and breads, with cereals, baking, salads, trail mix, or eaten on their own. They can act as a direct replacement for raisins or any dried fruit.

Nutritional Benefits Of Cranberries

Dried cranberries contain the same nutrients as fresh cranberries with the exception of vitamin A and vitamin C which is depleted in the dehydration process. Dried cranberries are often soaked in a sugar solution prior to drying to reduce tartness and improve texture. They are also often coated in a small amount of vegetable oil to prevent sticking.

Where Are Cranberries From?

The USA and Canada are the biggest producers of cranberries in the world. Our cranberries are imported from one of these 2 countries, depending on the season.
