How to Store
Refrigerate bagged cranberries for up to 2 to 3 weeks or freeze them in the unopened bag, for up to 9 months.
How to Select
Fresh cranberries are usually sold in bags, check for quality by selecting plump, unblemished cranberries. The red color will vary from light to dark red; the deepness of color does not affect quality. Do not select fresh cranberries that appear soft, shriveled or have a dull appearance.
Just before cooking, rinse cranberries in cold water and remove stems or bruised fruit. If using frozen cranberries in cooking, do not thaw the berries. Thawing cranberries will cause them to become soft and lose their crispness.
Chopping cranberries by hand can be difficult and time consuming. Try chopping cranberries, a few cups at a time, in the food processor. There will be about 3 cups chopped cranberries per 12 ounce bag.
