It happens every year. I do the cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving and have a reinvigorated love affair with cranberries. I often reserve using cranberries in the kitchen for the holidays, but there are so many wonderful dessert recipes that use the tart, healthy berries in interesting and inspired ways. It came up at the Thanksgiving table this year: besides cranberry sauce, what do you do with whole cranberries in the kitchen? The wonderful oatmeal cranberry cookie came up, but so did brownies, bundt cakes and steamed puddings! Here are a few recipes from our discussion; hopefully one of them will inspire you to pick up a bag of these ruby red beauties next time you're at the market.
