This summer we’re celebrating the Fourth of July with America’s original superfruit – Cranberries.   We’re also making it easy for you to gather friends and family for a good old fashioned day of fun.  Our easy recipes and refreshing drinks are a special way to get the red, white and blue flowing through everyone’s veins and straight to their hearts.

These bold berries have a refreshing flavor for summer and are grown in the gold old USA.  The bonus is that they also have wonderful health properties.  They contain antioxidants; are naturally fat and cholesterol free, low in sodium and are a good source of dietary fiber.  Be sure to check out UScranberries.com to view more amazing recipes.

As we love easy summer entertaining, we couldn’t wait to share this fun and festive party dessert idea!  Create a delicious dessert in a jar for guests.  It’s perfect for adults’ and children’s hands and a must for outdoor entertaining!  We made our trifle with homemade custard and tart Cranberry Coulis.  The coulis is soaked up by cubes of buttery pound cake and the delicious dessert is topped off perfectly with real cream topping.  We chose the bold flavor of cranberries to make this dessert refreshing for summer.
