Season food of the month

December 6, 2017

Our seasonal food of the month for December is of course Cranberries...
 

Cranberries are a health food due to their high nutrient and antioxidant content.  They are often referred to as a "super food” and 50g of cranberries contains only 25 calories. 

 

The nutrients in cranberries have been linked to a lower risk of urinary tract infections, prevention of certain types of cancer, improved immune function, and decreased blood pressure. They are also high in vitamin C, vitamin A, and vitamin K and contain proanthocyanidins (PACs), an antioxidant that can help prevent a range of diseases.

 

Try this quick and easy cranberry relish which can be served alongside, cheese, cold meats or with some inevitable left over turkey in a sandwich!

 

2 tbsp olive oil

1 onion, chopped

4 tbsp red wine vinegar

6 tbsp brown sugar

100g cranberries

 

Heat the oil in a saucepan, place the onion, vinegar, sugar and cranberries into the pan and cook for 5-6 minutes.
