We all know that cranberries are these antioxidant-rich natural jewel-toned pearls but that's not really the reason why we decided to make them the stars of this roundup. There's nothing like their vibrant, enticing colours and sweet but tart pop of flavour. If you read last week's pomegranate recipe roundup, you know what we are talking about!

You can go sweet or you can go tart - or you can do a little bit of both with cranberries.  They're not just for Thanksgiving or Christmas and they for so much more than cranberry sauce!

In other words, if you're striving to give your dishes an extra spark, try the over 35 cranberry recipes below and make them glow.
