Cranberry Mors


Do you love the tart cranberries?

I absolutely love anything to do with cranberries. Usually, have them brewed for tea, make a bit of jam or an add in a hand full to roasting pumpkins. So yumm.
Of late, I have taken a fancy to a  brew of freeze-dried berries from a Russian recipe. It was a pure coincidence to find a recipe when I had a handful of beautiful cranberries.
This simple recipe is one of the best if you have frozen cranberries and it is just perfect for summer.  Spice it up if you like with a bit of cinnamon and cardamom for a amazing aroma. But, I love the basic one.
The whole idea of simmering and releasing the pectin from the cranberries to give a silky feel to the drink should be not restricted to the recipe books. I have used freeze-dried cranberries for this recipe and they are my all time favourite
There we we have something for the year round with cranberries than just a Thanksgiving style Cranberry sauce.

Since the alphabet C is on for this month on A-Z recipe challenge, it was the perfect opportunity to tackle this tart fruit.
A-Z recipe challenge is a group of hardworking bloggers who have come together to showcase the various ingredients based on alphabetical order. It is a fun and evolving concept where each of us discovers new ingredients or new uses based on the region we are in, the season and more. Watch out for our collection on my space on Instagram or Facebook by the end of the month. So long then…enjoy your drink.

Not only this drink comforting during the cold season but it adds like a natural diuretic too. Have tried cranberry flavored tea but this drink sounds good too. So the cranberries you used are different from the slightly sweet dried ones?

This drink will be a welcome addition to my pantry in Summer. I have recently liked to appreciate the taste of cranberries (not a fan of berries, in general) and would like to challenge my palate.
