Thanksgiving is perhaps the only time of year many families eat fresh cranberries. The cranberry growers estimate that 20% of their crop is eaten at the Thanksgiving holiday. Cranberries are high in fiber and vitamin C and contain just 25 calories per 1/2 cup of fresh berries. They are also low in sodium and a source of vitamins A & B, calcium, phosphorus, and iron.
