A cranberry is so small it’s hard to believe the vitamins and nutrients it contains.

One cup of cranberries is 45 calories and contains protein, calcium, iron, dietary fiber and Vitamins A and C.

The prime time for cranberries is October through December. Although cranberries are more than likely on your dinner table at Thanksgiving and Christmas, this fruit is very versatile.

Besides being edible it’s used in decorations, wreaths, garland and other crafty ideas.

When you purchase cranberries fresh, store them in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator. They will last approximately 6 to 8 weeks stored. Cranberries are tart and are normally eaten after being cooked.
