Cranberries....Tart and Delicious



Cranberries can add a splash of red colour that will light up the dish, with it's tart flavour and delicious taste. My favourite sandwich is cold turkey with cranberry sauce, I think our family could eat it every day.

There is no better source of Vitamin C, one cup (250 ML) contains 46 calories and is packed full of antioxidant and other health benefits.
