Cranberries, Cranberries

Friday, November 27, 2009

I bought a bag of cranberries a couple days ago so that I was able to make the cranberry jello salad the day before Thanksgiving. The jello salad is very good, and I'm sure I'll make it again, but since the recipe just called for 1 cup of them, I still have a bunch, and am wondering if I can just freeze them, or do I have to boil them first? And do I add the sugar so that it can dissolve and should I freeze it that way? I havd never bought fresh cranberries before, so I don't know. And my mom had never bought them fresh either. If any of you know how to handle fresh cranberries, I'd appreciate your help.

    You sure can just pop them in the freezer, doesn't seem to affect them one little bit. emoticon

    I just used up the bag of cranberries from last year. Freezing doesn't seem to affect them at all. I usually just throw the bag into the freezer straight from the market and then clean them when I'm going to use them.

    Yes, just what everyone else said. Except you want to wash them first & make sure they're dry when you freeze them. Put them in a ziplock baggie & freeze them. Or you can even put them in a freezer container & do it that way.

    Just seal the bag and pop it in your freezer -- no fuss or bother. When you're ready to use them, chop them while they're still frozen.

  Michelle, I have frozen fresh cranberries. When I do use them they are just like fresh.
