Cranberries are one of those fruits that seem to have a single, yearly purpose and then they’re forgotten about until next year. Today, I’m here to tell you that cranberries are not a once-a-year food. They’re so much more than cranberry sauce and they’re perfect for so many different recipes. Plus, you can use them year round!
I teamed up with Bridges Produce and Patience Fruit &, Co. to bring you this fabulous recipe today. I met the great people behind Bridges Produce during my trip to Atlanta for PMA’s Fresh Summit. Patience Fruit & Co. produces sustainably grown organic cranberries in Quebec, Canada which are in season late September through late December.
Fresh cranberries keep really well in the refrigerator and they also freeze really well. You can stock up now and freeze any extra to use the rest of the year, which is exactly what Adam’s grandparents do. Cranberries are great in desserts (like this!) and they’re even delicious with meat other than turkey – like pork! I LOVE cranberries with pork, so wintery and delicious!
Last year, I shared my slow-cooker cranberry sauce and my cranberry orange bread with you. This year, I’m going beyond the basics and I made a spectacular cranberry dessert: Cranberry Upside-Down Cake. And ohmygerd is it good!
Also, next month I’ll be posting a Cranberry Orange Sangria. Can’t get through the holidays without a drink 😉🍷
I adapted the cake from my pineapple upside-down cake and let me tell you, that was a really good cake. BUT, I think I like this version more! There’s so much going on here; moist and flavorful yellow cake, sweet caramelized brown sugar glaze, tart cranberries… so, so good! Top it with some vanilla ice cream for an even greater experience 🍦Enjoy!
