I have always loved all berry recipes, but cranberries are my favorite. The "Kitchen Crew" has named me the Cranberry Queen now !!! haha The first Ocean Spray building started in my home town of Hanson, MA.
This group is for all berry recipes as we can interchange them in any recipe.
Berries are so healthy for you as well. Believe it or not I can pick blueberries right in my home town as well.
Berries are a great anti-oxidant as we are all learning. So lets get baking some of the many recipes here to choose from and can make during the Holidays. I grew up in New England. Please add any recipes for main meals, desserts, drinks, sauces, puddings, appetizers.


 

Does anyone know ~

Lemon Cranberry Pound Cake

Hello there. New groupie here. I am impressed by these snow pictures! I wanted to share the recipe I made the other day and to pass along the lesson learned. I used a recipe for lemon pound cake and had picked up some organic cranberries at a market. I thought it sounded good together. The recipe calls for cake flour. In the back of my mind warning bells went off, but I was too busy to pay attention. At the worst I figured the cranberries would just sink to the bottom.
But no.
The cake cooked up, was quite done and as it cooled, it slowly sunk in the middle. It was so disappointing. If I had just used all purpose flour, I don't think I would have had any problems what so ever. On the plus side, I just cut out the center and we ate the rest and it WAS wonderful! Around here in SoCal, (or at least in my house) cranberries are often overlooked. Although I use Craisins all the time, in lieu of raisins, because, duh, they are more delicious! So I joined this group to inspire more cranberry cookery in my home.
And to warn you off cake flour. Which is too expensive anyway.

Well the good news is
