Frozen cranberries should be thawed out when ready to use, simply rinse with cold water and use immediately. One pound of berries measures approximately four cups and makes about one quart of whole berry or jellied sauce. Cranberries side dishes go along with any variety of meat but most popular with chicken and turkey dinners. The berries are also great toppers for ice cream, cake, muffins, scones, sandwiches and even a glaze for baked hams..
