Wild Cranberry Orange Muffins

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Charlotte J

These would be nice to have on a Thanksgiving breakfast table. This came in an email this morning. I've never heard of bottled or canned cranberries before so when I make this I'm going to use 1 cup fresh cranberries chopped.

These were easy to make and tasted good, but were not quite sweet enough. I think that is because I used fresh berries, since I couldn't find the canned, and the canned would be sweetened. I used to see canned wild cranberries from Maine years ago, but couldn't find them. I just lightly chopped fresh. So perhaps a little more sugar mixed in with the berries and orange peel. They also make a rather small muffin, to get the yield of 12.
