What to do When the Dried Cranberries You Bought Don't Taste as Good as You'd Hoped

Eat them with walnuts.

They will also be passable in cranberry nut bread. Did they get all dry and weird? Same thing happens to the dried currants I buy, sometimes.

Dry, yes, and also with a weird, bitter-orange flavor, despite the fact that they are NOT dried cranberries with "orange essence." Cranberry nut bread is a brilliant idea. I even have the perfect loaf pan.

How do you eat the dried currants?

If I remember right (haven't bought them in a while), I bought them for Irish soda bread, and then I left them in the cupboard. They were fine in the soda bread though - I guess the moisture of the wet ingredients plumped them up and made them far more edible.

I often have the oposite problem with the fresh cranberries (with the same solution). If I don't remember to pop them in the freezer they go all runny, and then I use them in the bread, where they make the bread extra moist (and very pink throughout!).

Hmmm, now I feel like baking.
