Flavor of the Month


Cranberries are harvested in late autumn, just in time to celebrate the holidays. Whether you prefer to enjoy cranberries in a jam, as a sauce from the can, juiced, dried, or fresh, there’s no denying that cranberries are festive. They’re tart, dark red, and pair really well with a turkey dinner (according to science).

  1. I love this stuff. Science really is the base with food – wish I was a little further along myself on this – thank you for the enlightenment!!!
