Thanksgiving may be over, but there are plenty of more reasons to enjoy these red gems while theyre in season.
One cup of fresh cranberries provides close to 50 calories, is an excellent source of the antioxidant vitamin C and a good source of fiber and manganese. The gorgeously hued berries also contain numerous flavonoids, including anthocyanins, which may play a role in fighting cancers of the breast, lung and colon.
Bought too many fresh ones? Wrap loose cranberries in plastic wrap or store them in an unopened bag in the refrigerator for up to 2 months. They can also be frozen for up to 1 year. Do not rinse before storing.
