Cranberry Institute

http://www.cranberryinstitute.org  

Review by Debbie Mazo

 

Cranberry Institute 
From November to December, cranberries are front and center at many holiday tables. Cranberries are popular not only for their traditional holiday value, but also because of their tangy taste. Find out how you can bring out the best in cranberries, when you stop by the Cranberry Institute.

For Native Americans, cranberries were an important food used to preserve fish and meats and to treat various illnesses. Today, cranberries are still considered an excellent nutritional source. At the Cranberry Institute, you can discover the role cranberries play in everything from promoting cardiovascular health to preventing cancer. Not only do cranberries taste great, they also contain plant chemicals that may prevent breast and colon cancer as well as reduce the incidence of cardiovascular disease.

Everyone loves a traditional cranberry sauce, but cranberries can also complement other dishes. Click on Holiday Recipes for old favorites like Triple Berry Cranberry Sauce, as well as inventive selections like Cranberried Sweet Potatoes. Use fresh or frozen cranberries for this easy-to-make dish and combine with apple juice, brown sugar, lemon, and honey. Pour over sweet potatoes, bake for 20 minutes, and serve hot from the oven.

After the holiday season, don't forget to add cranberries to your favorite treats. At the Cranberry Institute, the Recipes link shows how cranberries can spice up just about any dish with choices like Cranberry Salsa that you can enjoy all-year round.
