(NAPSA) – The cranberry’s beautiful deep-red color and tangy taste makes this ‘wonderberry’ one of the most versatile ingredients for kitchen creations, from sweet Halloween treats to savory turkeys.
When Halloween season creeps in, send your little goblins and princesses off to their haunted house parties with some festive Craisins(r) Halloween treats in hand, such as Ooglie Eyeballs brownie desserts. Or serve refreshing Ghoulishly Grape Punch, made with Ocean Spray(r) Cran-Grape(r), after a long night of trick-or-treating. For the Halloween party hostess, bring a festive tray of Cranberry Nut Bars.
When the fall holiday focus turns to Thanksgiving, let cranberries take center stage. One way to guarantee a moist flavorful bird is to use the White Cranberry Brined Turkey recipe. As a complement, try Ocean Spray’s simple Homemade Cranberry Sauce recipe.
One of the best things about Thanksgiving is the leftovers. More than 67 percent of people eat a post-Thanksgiving Day turkey sandwich, and 47 percent of those sandwiches include cranberry sauce.
Cranberries add nutrition to any meal as they have more disease-fighting anti-oxidants per gram than most other fruit and they contain proanthocyanidins, or PACs, all-natural compounds that keep certain bacteria from sticking in the body.
