Despite being a close relative to blueberries, cranberries are usually not eaten raw because of their sharp, sour taste. They might not be your thing raw but they are great when added to dishes and there are many healthy reasons to eat them.Cranberries are great sources of fibre and several vitamins and minerals, including manganese, copper, and vitamins C, E, and K1. They are great for more than just turkey dinner so try them in smoothies, muffins, and other baked goods like berry crumbles. Cranberries pair really well as a sauce for meats like pork and game and really shine when their sourness can be matched by big, full flavours. Keep them in your freezer until you need just a little pop of tartness.
