Store Well Waste Less Cranberries

■ Store fresh cranberries in their original packaging or a tightly sealed plastic bag for up to 2 months in a refrigerator crisper. Remove any soft or decayed berries to help them store longer.

■ Rinse fresh cranberries just before using.

Types of Cranberries


Fresh cranberries are bland but tart. They are generally added to recipes, not eaten alone. They are also available as frozen berries.

Red cranberries – deep red color is desirable; tartness develops as the color deepens.

❁ Look for cranberries that range in color from light to dark red and are plump, glossy, and firm. White berries mixed in with the red do not need to be discarded. They are mature and have a milder flavor.

❁ Avoid berries that are shriveled, soft or decaying.
