Fresh Cranberry Recipes You Want to Try

Collage of the best fresh cranberry recipes out there!

Fresh cranberries are so tart and delicious. That means that fresh cranberry recipes are the best. Obviously there is a place for dried cranberries, but man, fresh is just unbeatable.

Frozen cranberries are a perfect substitute for fresh, so when you find a great deal on cranberries after Thanksgiving (I’ve gotten bags for 49 cents before) stock up on enough to last you the year and just store them in the freezer.

Maybe you find yourself wondering what exactly you should do with fresh cranberries. Perhaps the only way you’ve ever seen them used is in cranberry sauce that’s set out with the turkey (even though almost no one eats it).

Wonder no more.

This post is the ultimate list of fresh cranberry recipes. You can experiment and cook and bake to your heart’s content. There are things from muffins to appetizers to chicken to desserts.

Everything you could possibly want or need.
