Cranberries, Dried

Sweetened dried cranberries are processed from whole premium USDA Grade No. 1 fresh cranberries. They are sprayed with a sugar solution to balance tartness and give them appropriate texture and mouthfeel. They are also sprayed with oil to prevent sticking together.


    • Store unopened dried cranberries in a cool, dry place off the floor not exceeding 65°F. Shelf life is extended if stored below 45°F.

    • For best quality, opened, dried cranberries should be used within 12 months if stored below 65°F; 18 months if stored below 45°F. Best storage is at low humidity, so refrigeration is excellent for storage.

Uses and Tips

    • Dried cranberries are a quick and easy snack, and can be eaten right out of the package.

    • Use as a tasty addition to trail mix, quick breads, muffins, desserts, sauces, salsa, and salads.

    • Sprinkle dried cranberries over cold or cooked cereals – dried cranberries can also be cooked in the cereal.

    • Dried cranberries are a delicious addition to chopped chicken or turkey salads.

    • Dried cranberries are a no-fat, no cholesterol, no sodium food.
