When still in season I always buy many packs of cranberries and I freeze them. I do that in case I run out of my cranberry spread or jam which my family and I are addicted to. We use them on yogurt, bread, pancakes, crepes, for making cakes, breads etc.
Cranberries are not only delicious but also packed with vitamin C and have natural anti-inflammatory properties.

- 2 cups flour -
- 1 cup sugar -
- 1 tsp baking powder -
- 1 tsp salt -
- 1/2 tsp baking soda -
- 1 Tbs. grated orange + lemon zest - grate the orange peel and then squeeze the juice...it's hard to do the opposite : ))
- 3/4 cup orange juice - 1 orange
- 2-3 Tbs. olive oil -

- 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries, coarsely chopped - I use cranberry jam so I add only 1/3 c. sugar

If using cranberry jam reduce the amount of sugar: instead of 1 cup add 1/3 cup.
