Description: Cranberries are a source of vitamin C, an antioxidant that may reduce your risk of heart disease and certain cancers. Vitamin C helps protect skin from bruising, helps heal cuts and keeps gums healthy. Eating foods with vitamin C helps the body absorb iron. Cranberries also provide potassium and fiber. Potassium helps maintain healthy blood pressure, and fiber helps control cholesterol and keeps you regular.

Selection: Choose plump cranberries that are firm and do not appear shriveled or decayed.

Storing: Cranberries can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 months or freeze for future use.
