Cranberries…not just a band

November 16, 2012

With Thanksgiving on the horizon, why not embrace a little cranberry in your life?!? Not to mention, cranberries are known for having tons of antioxidants and being a super food. I’m not sure they are as effective when you throw in boatloads of sugar and other things. We will just ignore that part for our purposes. We can thank my wonderful grandmother for this goodie…

If you like cranberries, you’ll love this.  I, of course, love the Gabby friendly component of this recipe.  We all enjoyed and it was easy to make.  Problem with this recipe is that it’s very seasonal so you can only make it around this time of year, otherwise it’s near impossible to find cranberries (I tried).

One thought on “Cranberries…not just a band

  1. Cranberries freeze really well. If you plan ahead (which I rarely do :)), you can make it all year round.
