Cranberries are available in many different forms: fresh, dried, cooked, or as juice. Cranberries have a high degree of acidity that is only surpassed by that of lemons and limes. This degree of acidity means that cranberries should be prepared if they are to be enjoyed. Cranberries have a herbal fragrance and contain high levels of pectin which can quickly create a thick sauce when the cranberries are cooked.
