Thanksgiving how-to: rehydrating dried cranberries

I just found it incredibly frustrating to do a search because I couldn’t remember exactly how I do it (once a year).  So, for all my faithful followers . . . Here is how to rehydrate dried cranberries.

My recipe called for 1 cup.  Treat the ratio like you do for rice.  Twice as much water as cranberries.

  1. Bring 2 cups of water to a boil in small saucepan
  2. Add 1 cup dried cranberries
  3. Boil uncovered 15 minutes
  4. Drain

And that’s it. No special ingredients.  You don’t need cranberry juice, or white grape juice or vinegar or any of the other hosts of nonsense I found in my brief search.  Just do it.

Enjoy your holiday!
