FOOD PHILOSOPHER® GOES WHEATLESS
Crazy for Cranberries
THE PRODUCE STANDS AND GROCERY STORES
ARE CHOCK FULL OF
bright red cranberries just in time for the holidays.
Cranberries are a quintessential American food. They are one of only three
fruits native to the United States; the other two are blueberries and
Concord grapes. In fact, the first written recipe to include cranberries
appeared in New England in the early 1700’s. They are colorful,
flavorful and high in vitamin C and antioxidants.*
Cranberries are used in beverages, breads, muffins, cookies, desserts,
condiments, and a variety of other dishes. We love their bold color and
tartness in our delicious Cranberry Nut Bread. We make ours the traditional
way, flavored with sweet orange and crunchy walnuts, but in a tempting
gluten–free version. Make a loaf for your holiday meals or enjoy a slice
with afternoon tea or a festive Sunday brunch. You won’t be disappointed!
*Cranberries are often recommended for urinary tract health and are thought
to help reduce the risk of some cancers.
