Blustery days, fallen leaves, foggy mornings, chilly nights, where-did-our-daylight-go, clear skies, rainy skies, the first good rain since May, persimmons, pumpkins, pomegranates, pecans, walnuts, and those belles of the Thanksgiving ball, garnet red cranberries. Fall is indeed here.

My father loves cranberries. At the first sign of fresh cranberries appearing in the grocery stores he buys bagfuls just so he can freeze them and enjoy them a little later on in the season when they are no longer available fresh. Cranberries are grown in boggy fields in the northern and north eastern states and Canada and are harvested in the fall. If you want whole cranberries, October November is the time to buy them fresh. Frozen they will last several months.

If you are looking for cranberry recipes to prepare over the holidays, here are are few of our favorites, as well as some delicious looking recipes from other food blogs.

    I’m with your dad. I adore cranberries. Of course, having grown up in RI, I didn’t have much choice in the matter. I don’t have my recipes with me now, but I love cranberry and pear chutney, cranberry and dried cherry sauce, cranberry and orange bread, and cranberry smoothies–they really wake you up!

    My mom’s cranberry-orange bread, which is really just a recipe from the “Silver Palate,” (or the New Basics, one of those Sheila Lukins ones).
    When I lived in the Middle East I realized how wonderful and unique cranberries were.

    I just posted my family’s recipe for Cranberry Ice, a combination sherbet/granita that is always served with the main meal at Thanksgiving and Christmas (and never INSTEAD of dessert). Bonus – no ice cream maker needed.
