Notice there are not too many recipes up there with cranberries. While cranberries are great for your health, they're not quite as popular in recipes because they are so tart or sour. Cranberries are often referred to as a “super food”! The possible health benefits of consuming cranberries include lowered risk of urinary tract infections, prevention of certain types of cancer, improved immune function, decreased blood pressure and more. Cranberries are a good source of vitamin C, fiber and vitamin E.
