Expert Tips

These delicious muffins will look even more appealing when served with orange slices and a sprig of mint.

Cranberries are native to North America. Pilgrims noticed that cranes flew in great flocks to the cranberry bogs and feasted on the sour red berries. Thus the berries got the name "craneberries," which later became "cranberries."
