A Lot of left over cranberries from ThanksGiving...i love klakkaai (karonda in hindi,Carissa carandas in english) pickle which is available in Trivandrum....when ever i go to my grandma's home in Trivandrum we can find a jar of klakkaai pickle in her kitchen storage....as cranberry is more close to klakkaai representing all the characteristic of klakkaai but with an extra benefit of having no seeds, i plan to make the similar pickle with cranberry....know what it turned to be awesome and of same taste....
I tried this pickle with my own concussion of items,here is the recipe...
Cranberry juice is a major use of cranberries; it is usually either sweetened to make "cranberry juice cocktail" or blended with other fruit juices to reduce its natural severe tartness. Many cocktails, including the Cosmopolitan, are made with cranberry juice. At one teaspoon of sugar per ounce, cranberry juice cocktail is more highly sweetened than even soda drinks that have been linked to obesity.
Usually cranberries as fruit are cooked into a compote or jelly, known as cranberry sauce. Such preparations are traditionally served with roast turkey, as a staple of English Christmas dinners, and the Canadian and US holiday Thanksgiving. The berry is also used in baking (muffins, scones, cakes and breads). In baking it is often combined with orange or orange zest. Less commonly, innovative cooks use cranberries to add tartness to savory dishes such as soups and stews.
Fresh cranberries can be frozen at home, and will keep up to nine months; they can be used directly in recipes without thawing.
Cranberry wine is made in some of the cranberry-growing regions of the United States and Canada from either whole cranberries, cranberry juice or cranberry juice concentrate.
Raw cranberries have moderate levels of Vitamin C, dietary fiber and the essential dietary mineral, manganese,as well as a balanced profile of other essential micronutrients in minor amounts.
There is potential benefit of cranberry juice consumption (300 mL of cranberry juice per day) against bacterial infections in the urinary system. Laboratory research shows that a possible effect may occur from a component of the juice inhibiting bacterial attachment to the bladder and urethra.
