In addition to being dried, Dried Cranberries are usually sweetened, because otherwise the pucker power would be too much for most people.
They are sweetened by soaking them in sweetened water, which besides sweetening them, helps the fruit retain its colour and flavour throughout the drying process and storage.
Dried Cranberries look like raisins, except they are red.
Added to wild rice and walnuts, make a great stuffing for pork or goose. Can be used for baking, cooking or as a snack food. Can be added to fruit salads, or sprinkled on top of breakfast cereal.
You can swap Dried Cranberries in for raisins in your recipes.
