I couldn’t believe how delicious these Cranberry Muffins were! This was my first time working with fresh cranberries and I am in love with them! Well when I say “fresh” I mean “freshly frozen”. LOL! But still… It amazes me how different they taste compare to the dried ones I normally use.

I am definitely going to use them more often in the future. (This fall is all about trying new cooking ingredients apparently. Like this Cake I made for my father-in-law’s birthday using fondant.)

So here is how to make these delicious muffins using fresh/frozen cranberries.
