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.

White cranberries – harvested for juice rather than sold fresh.

Cranberry products that are available all year include: cranberry juice and juice blends, canned cranberry sauce, and dried cranberries. These processed cranberry products usually have added sugar. Dried cranberries can be found without added sugar.
