Cranberry Orange Fudge and Other Treats to Welcome Fall

October 5, 2014

It's cranberry season here in Maine. This is the best time to stop at one of the roadside cranberry farms and buy a big bag of fresh berries for the winter. Although they seem less than spectacular when raw, cooking the berries makes them burst with tart juiciness that is so welcome during the cold winter months. If you get a chance to buy some extras, cranberries can not be eaten raw and hold up perfectly when frozen. You can toss them in the freezer and measure out what you need for a recipe. Check out these recipes we found that highlight cranberries in each one of them. They are all beautiful, tasty, and well worth the effort.
