I could not believe my eyes when I saw a few packets of fresh cranberries at the fruit section at Tesco, Ipoh !!! I was practically jumping up and down
on my trotters and I must have oinked out loud coz Wild Boar asked me " what is wrong with you ? " Seeing me...grabbing packets of fresh cranberries off the rack into the trolley , he thought I have gone crazy ...!!! He is not a fan of fresh cranberries unlike me, I yearn for it most of the time ....When I can't get the fresh ones, I used dried ones for my bakes which lack the bitterish taste. Dried ones are sweetened so they are not my cup of tea but fresh ones comes with a slight tang and bitterish...that makes me like it so much. There were about 5 packets left on the rack and I wanted to take them all but on second thoughts where am I going to store them in the freezer...there is hardly space now that I am almost making fruit popsicles everyday :p So I grabbed 3 packets of them.....they came just in time for my Xmas cooking !!! Cranberry sauce is good for roast chicken or turkey and now I am thinking of cupcakes, cakes and muffins with these 'hard to get' fresh cranberries . Yay ! Fresh cranberries now filled my dreams...and I noticed that Tesco usually have them in the month of November nearing to Christmas and boy ! I am one lucky Momsie ! Ain't I ??? And they were fresh and big too ! I will be watching out for great recipes that uses fresh cranberries in the next few weeks and if you happened to have a good one please share with me by leaving your link here for me :) Thank you and I am so excited now...LOL! I have to pinch myself a few times to believe that I really have them in my freezer ! And you know what, I regretted not taking the whole lot back home with me , then I could have fresh cranberries all the year through !
Watch out for more cranberries goodies in the next few weeks.......
and have a nice day :)
