February 3rd—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
One of the few fruits that are native to North America, cranberries are famous for their vivid, tart flavor. They're also infamous for their short harvest season, limiting the availability of the fresh berries to a brief, autumn timeframe. If you're a cranberry lover, we have exciting news.
Trader Joe's Freeze Dried Cranberries are just that. Cranberries. No sweeteners, no preservatives, no flavor enhancers, no additives of any kind. Inside every bag you'll find whole, Freeze Dried Cranberries, and nothing else. It takes about 10 ounces of fresh cranberries to fill each 1.2 ounce bag of Freeze Dried Cranberries. Because their moisture has been removed, they're light and crunchy, yet they retain all of the tart tang that makes cranberries so distinctive. You can enjoy them as a crunchy snack, in a smoothie, as a yogurt topper, cereal addition, for baking, or rehydrate them in water (one to two minutes) to make them slice-able.
Freeze Dried Cranberries retain all the antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and nutrient benefits of their fresh brethren, with the benefit of longer shelf life and far less limited availability. And they come with a great price, too. We're selling each 1.2 ounce bag for $2.99, every day. You'll find them in our dried fruit section.
