Besides the ubiquitous pumpkin spice, nothing says autumn more than tart cranberries. Cranberries are a major component of Thanksgiving feasts, turning up alongside and atop turkey as well as in quick breads and desserts.
Cranberries are loaded with health benefits, which include reducing the risk for ulcers and preventing gum disease. Also, just eight ounces of cranberry juice cocktail contains 137 percent of the daily recommended value of vitamin C.
Cranberries can even be used to craft great cocktails. Move over mulled ciders, this crisp Cranberry Margarita from The Cape Cod Cranberry Growers Association makes a great autumn-inspired beverage.
