Fall and Thanksgiving definitely offer cranberries in endless varieties.
Cranberries can be found canned whole, canned jelled, frozen, and dried. Cranberries are everywhere this time of year. The dip itself is gluten-free. I have found gluten-free pretzels at my local food co-op for a perfect gluten-free snack. This dip is really good on a bagel with cream cheese for a nice breakfast without much fuss on Thanksgiving morning before the big feast. As I type this I think what a great glaze this would make on a ham or pork loin at Christmas. Whenever, or wherever you use the cranberry dip you just know it is good, and we all know how good cranberries are for you!
