Cranberries: A Vitamin C. Holiday Treat

Cranberries are good and good for you. When you serve them on your Thanksgiving table, you can be sure you are giving your loved ones a food high in vitamin C.  

Three and a half ounces of raw cranberries contain 46 calories; the same amount in cranberry sauce contains 146 calories and 3 1/2 ounces of cranberry juice contain 65.
 
Purchase cranberries that are firm and plump; a high luster indicates ripeness. Store them in the refrigerator, unwashed but covered until ready to use.
 
Moisture hastens cranberry spoilage. They will keep on the refrigerator shelf from one to four weeks.
