Tart and fruity, fresh cranberries work well in both sweet and savory recipes. But there’s a reason to love them for more than just their taste--fresh cranberries are a fall superfood, providing a good source of vitamins and plenty of antioxidants.

And while Thanksgiving is all about cranberry sauce, it’s time to put fresh cranberries back into the spotlight. That’s why we created five new recipes that celebrate cranberries all season long. So grab a bag of berries and get seasonal with these fresh takes.
