leftover fresh cranberries
I have about a pound of fresh cranberries that I didn't use and would like to bake something with them. Does anyone have any ideas for a cake or bread that would use fresh cranberries? I'm thinking they would go nicely with nuts or orange or lemon zest but don't have a recipe for it.
- pumpkin bread or muffins with ginger & pecans
- cornbread or cornmeal muffins with meyer lemon
my recipes call for gluten-free flours & ingredients, but if either of those sounds appealing to you, i'm sure you can search the home cooking board for a good base recipe and add the cranberries & juice/zest/nuts.
for the record, if you don't want to use them right away, cranberries freeze extremely well.
An out-of-the-box reply: Fill a clear vase with them and then fill with water. It will probably keep thru Christmas and looks really cool!
The "Chow Recipe of the Day" for November 20th, is a spiced cranberry Sangria
that sounds delicious. You might use your leftover berries for that. Or as another poster
recommended, use them in a vase, but add some flowers. The berries will act like
those glass marbles to hold the flowers.
