    Freeze leftover berries. I put them on a cookie sheet, freeze 'em then put the frozen berries in a freezer bag. Won't be a big lump when you need more.
    Can I convert this recipe into a bread or something? I don't have a muffin pan. Can I follow this recipe, but pour it into a rectangular pan and make bread?

    I haven't bought cranberries yet from Costco, for this season. I need to do that, and make sure I buy enough.

    These are the things I want to make:

    * Cranberry Marmalade (1 lb. cranberries):

    * Orange Glazed Cranberry Bread (1 cup cranberries)

    * Cranberry Syrup (1 cup cranberries):

    Another recipe, uses unsalted butter:

    * Cranberry BBQ Sauce (2 cups)

    * Cranberry-Pistachio Bark (1/3 cup)

    * Lemon Cranberry Muffins (maybe I can convert it to bread?) (1 cup)

    So based on the 2 lb. Costco bags, is 6 lbs. enough, or should I go for 8 lbs.?

    Apparently Yes you can but I haven't tried this

    Because muffins are small, they are generally baked at relatively high temperatures so they develop browning before their interiors overcook. In general, muffins bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Loaves, on the other hand, have a much greater volume-to-surface-area ratio and require longer baking at a lower temperature. We tested several fruit and nut muffin recipes, as well as a plain one, baking each in 8 1/2 by 4 1/2-inch pans at a range of oven temperatures and times.Our findings?

    To convert a muffin recipe to make a loaf, set the oven rack in the middle position, decrease the oven temperature by 50 degrees, and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf matches the visual cue (either “with few moist crumbs attached” or “clean”), 60 to 70 minutes. Recipes with sugary toppings like streusel should be tented with foil during the last 20 to 25 minutes to prevent them from getting too dark.

    Thanks, seems doable. 60 - 70 minutes seems a bit long, I would probably check it at 40 - 50 minutes before letting it run longer if necessary.

    But definitely seems doable, since only the time and temperature need to be adjusted, not the overall ingredients.

    Use your remote thermometer to determine internal temps Bread is usually ready at around 200-205o. No reason why that should be any different.

    Good idea. I never knew that about the internal temp for bread.

    Not quite the same subject, but thought I would share it anyway. I buy the canned cranberry sauce and remove it from the can. I then slice it into small, thin slices ( maybe 3/8 inches) . I then use various cookie cutters to create various shapes of the season- such as leaves, pumpkins, turkeys, etc. I decorate the plates with these and always get compliments.

    @Len Dennis' recipe, converted into bread.

    It looked done after 20 mins, @ 350 degrees.

    It's really good.

    I think other cranberry products that I've bought before, must have been using dried cranberries. Because they didn't taste as juicy as the cranberries in this lemon cranberry bread.
