Cranberries are related to the blueberry, even though their flavors vary in significant ways. Cranberries are small, hard, tart, oval, red berries; normally considered too sharp to be eaten plain and raw, they are not only sour but bitter as well. Cranberries are harvested in the Fall (September-November) when the fruit takes on its distinctive, deep red color. Add cranberries to recipes for a tangy, natural flavor that will enhance any main dish or dessert.
