The Cranberry Marketing Committee (CMC) USA invites summer enthusiasts from coast to coast to download its new summertime eCookbook featuring twenty new and original summer recipes. Recipes include an array of cranberry salads, BBQ sauces, chutneys, cranberry spareribs, salmon, turkey and stuffed tomato grillables, beverages, and refreshing desserts. The CMC’s collection is a part of a concerted summer campaign to highlight the year-round culinary versatility of America’s Original SuperfruitSM.

“Our new summer eCookbook demonstrates the uniqueness of cranberries, in that the fruit can be used in so many different ways to enhance meals at all different times of the year,” said Scott J. Soares, Executive Director, CMC. The newest eCookbook follows the CMC’s release of “Top 20 Recipes to Watch in 2014.” in January. The July edition of the free downloadable cookbook complements a cache of “Get Your Cran On” summer ideas that have been hitting the social media scene since June.

Recent research shows evidence that the cranberry may provide big health benefits. A serving of fresh cranberries is a good source of vitamin C and fiber, provides polyphenols, and contains only 1 mg of sodium. For more recipe ideas, go to http://www.uscranberries.com.
