Yes the deep red of cranberries gets heightened when pickled.

You may find the Gujarati “Bor” berry is similar to the cranberry. Try with them.

This looks so good! Love the deep red of the pickled cranberries. 🙂
I wonder if I will ever get my hands on fresh cranberries here in Bangalore, India, where I stay. Would love to try this out.

Thanks for the feedback. Appreciate it.
Yes pickling makes the cranberries actually taste more tart.
Like that McKee Nue Cute glass 🙂

Interesting recipe. I just might have to try the pickling. Also that is a beautiful piece of McKee Nue Cute glass. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

Pickling the cranberries first, how interesting. Then combined with cranberry sauce and apples – sounds delicious. I just might have to try it as I am one of the few who enjoy this side during the holidays. Happy Fiesta Friday!

Thanks, Mayuri. Indeed it is an adaptation of Indian pickles recipes we make using raw mangoes or berries.

I usually don’t have much patience and time, and just stew all fruits and berries and then use it in a savory or sweet meals 🙂
but yours looks very yummy!
