It was American Independence Day yesterday, and I was thinking about foods that were typically North American. Cranberries immediately came to mind. They are one of the few fruits that are native to North America.
Cranberries are a fabulous source of Vitamin C and fibre. They are full of antioxidants and do a great job of protecting our cardiovascular system. They taste slightly tart, so are perfect for sweet cakes, muffins and slices. This slice recipe pairs dried cranberries with apple and cinnamon to create a moreish slice that is perfect for a school lunchbox. It also freezes well.
