How To Incorporate TPJ Cranberry Products Right Now

Cranberry season is here folks! Wait…who are we trying to fool? For those who use our cranberry products regularly, you know we have them in stock year-round (or at least when a pandemic isn’t causing havoc on supply chains). Certain times of the year are better for sourcing cranberries than others and this happens to be one of those times. With them being widely available right now it makes it easier for us to produce our cranberry selection.

We are excited to say that we just loaded up our shelves with fresh batches of our cranberry options. 

When we say fresh, we mean it.

You may not know this, but we make small batches of product so that you get the freshest possible flavors when you open our containers for the first time. We don’t stock giant warehouses with our merchandise because when you open a bottle of let’s say our Peach Cranberry, we want you to taste fresh cranberries and peaches. We want you to enjoy our stuff and we believe small batches help make that happen.

Of the products we make with cranberries we do a good job of balancing flavors. Cranberries make some people pucker while others enjoy the tartness of this fruit. The way we combine cranberries with habaneros in our Texas Pepper Jelly and other fruits in our Rib Candy doesn’t give a tart or sour flavor. It does however give the heat from the habanero. (Keep that in mind for those who don’t like any heat).

Since we stock cranberry items year-round, and we balanced the flavors out, it is easy to use our stuff for any meal. Here are just a couple of quick suggestions:

  • Apple Cranberry Habanero Rib Candy

 Incorporate it into a homemade syrup and use it with breakfast. 

1 cup sugar

1 cup brown sugar

3/4 cup Habanero Rib Candy

1 cup water

2 teaspoons vanilla

 

Boil together and cook gently for 3 minutes. Bottle and store in the refrigerator.

 

  • Peach Cranberry Habanero Rib Candy

Grill your pork chops and glaze with this.

  • Pomegranate Cranberry Habanero Rib Candy

Take your baby back ribs to a whole new level with this flavor combination. Use as a finishing glaze or add when you wrap.

  • Cranberry Habanero Pepper Jelly

Simply open the jar, and serve it with your favorite charcuterie board.

How you choose to eat our cranberry products is up to you, we just hope you choose to do so. Think outside the box and get creative. And when you do, take pics and share them with us.
