How to Select Cranberries
Fresh cranberries are firm to the touch, and if dropped will bounce. They firmness of the berries is the best indicator of quality and freshness. They should be plump, shiny and range in color from a light, bright red to a deep dark red color. Berries that are shriveled, discolored, have brown spots or bruising should be avoided.
How to Store Cranberries
After removing any damaged or molding cranberries store the remaining fresh cranberries in a sealed plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to two months. Cranberries which have been cooked can be stored in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to a month.
