Tart, tangy and sweet, dried cranberries are a delicious addition to your healthful diet. These pretty little gem-colored dried fruits are as versatile as raisins with a more flavorful punch. They are tasty as a snack and add a tangy zip to any recipe. Plus, each ¼ cup serving provides 3 grams of dietary fiber.
