Noteable Notes

Fresh cranberries are available in stores from mid-September through December and are most abundant during their peak harvest season, October and November. Take advantage of the peak season and be sure to freeze in abundance! To freeze cranberries, double-wrap in plastic without washing. Preparing frozen cranberries for cooking is very easy. Just sort and rinse cranberries in cold water.

No thawing is necessary and, in fact, best results are obtained without thawing.
