I just finished baking a batch of my very favorite cranberry muffins. I love cranberry muffins and I eat one virtually every day. Problem is where do you buy fresh cranberries in June? Answer - you don't. You buy them from November 'til January or whenever the supply dries up. I buy a few bags of fresh cranberries every time I go shopping in November and December. I store the bags of cranberries in zipper bags and freeze. We have an extra upright freezer in our basement. Then I have fresh frozen cranberries for my muffins all year long. I like knowing I have that stash available. I can't be the only one who does something like this. Fess up- who else hoards food or ingredients?
