One of our favorite recipes from 2018 and we're sorry we're now just adding it to our website. In 2018 we hosted a food blogger recipe challenge where we sent 50+ food bloggers our frozen cranberries and told them to create delicious cranberry recipes that would be great for summer time. They did not disappoint! And although we have shared many of these recipes from time to time on our social media pages and newsletters and there is a whole board on Pinterest of these recipes from this challenge some recipes just never made it onto the website until now! Give this awesome recipe a try and let us know how you like it! Tag us on social @CapeCodSelect - we love seeing your recipe creations!
