Cranberries are synonymous with sumptuous feasts, but it’s truly a bum rap to relegate this fruit – one of only a handful native to North America – to the holiday table. Packed with fiber and a good source of vitamin C, this berry can enhance both sweet and savory dishes with its memorably tart taste.

Though these recipes call for fresh cranberries, frozen can be used in a pinch or when cooking outside of the berry’s short growing season, which spans from September to November, just in time for Thanksgiving. A word to the wise: Don’t try to substitute dried cranberries for fresh in any recipe that involves reducing to a sauce, like the three included here. (You’ve been warned!)
