Spice up your recipes with Cranberries

Cranberry is a berry that tastes somewhat sour, which has been used for many purposes, both culinary and medicinal.
Currently, cranberries are used in natural medicine for the prevention and treatment of urinary tract infections. They are also rich in antioxidants, which fight the effects of free radicals in the body. Furthermore, they provide vitamins such as vitamin C and E as well as a good source of fibre, hence why it is a good idea to include them in your kitchen.

Both the salad and chicken recipes sound really great and I'll be interested to see how these turn out!
Another nice thing to try is a berry salad, with lots of strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries and cranberries (and perhaps with a little dollop of cream on the side for extra yumminess!). Cranberry juice isn't so great on its own but it does make up for it with all of its great vitamins.

Thanksgiving is coming up in a few days and my fiance makes this wonderful homemade cranberry sauce!!! It's incredible how easy it is to make, and I actually like it! I have NEVER liked that canned cranberry crap, and I can't believe people actually eat it.

All the berries are so delicious and you can prepare so many things with them, combine them, make red fruit jelly or anything you like and if you consume fresh, you take the advantages of the vitamins and minerals, very good for the skin and the eyes I think, but well that's what I have heard
