And if they can be....why the heck aren't they??
I have a recipe that calls for fresh cranberries the we desperately want to try. They're of course nowhere in the grocery stores right now. One produce guy looked at me like I had two heads and said "Excuse me, but we only have fresh cranberries for the holiday season". Oh. Sorry, forgive my stupidity.
So I tootled over to the frozen fruit section, and there are no frozen cranberries either. The only cranberries available in every major supermarket in my area are canned in cranberry sauce, which I do NOT want, and dried like in Craisins.
Cranberries are one of the most trendy and popular fruits out there, so I guess I'm having a hard time figuring out why I could only get them one month out of the year.
Obviously I'm not making this recipe until fall, but when I do find the fresh, is there anything stopping me from buying up a half dozen bags and storing them in my freezer? Or do they not freeze well?
