LOOKING for: frozen cranberry recipes?

Posted by fuddyduddy (My Page) on

Because I was strapped for time, I froze 2 cups of berries in each bag I placed in the freezer. Now, I would like to make "something" with them, and find mostly dried cranberry recipes, is there something I can do, either to the berries, or with them to enjoy some of the recipes that I have found, even the Starbuck's recipe posted here earlier?
I am guessing there must be at least 12 ounces at least, in the 2 cups, which would equal 1 package of the fresh at the produce counter? Need some real insight here!
