Expert Tips

Leftover cranberry sauce can be stored in the refrigerator for up to six weeks. The acid in the cranberries and the added sugar help preserve the sauce. Use it as an accompaniment to poultry, pork or ham.

Cranberries are native to Massachusetts and were part of the diets of the early colonists.
