Cranberry Oatmeal Sourdough Scones 

Get into the holiday spirit early this year and make these delicious scones. Cranberry Oatmeal Sourdough Scones are dotted with a fall favorite ingredient; cranberries. Cranberry and orange is a classic flavor combination. The two ingredients compliment each other beautifully. Top the scones with a light drizzle of orange powdered sugar glaze. The glaze adds just the right amount of sweetness.

Stock Up

We love cranberries here at Turnips 2 Tangerines and have several recipes containing both the fresh and dried varieties. When cranberries are in season, buy a few extra bags of cranberries to freeze. Simply throw them in the freezer in the same bag they came in. When the urge strikes, you’ll  have extra cranberries on hand. Bags of cranberries are relatively inexpensive so stock up!!

Cranberry Season

Cranberry Season in Wisconsin is marked with festivals, parades and recipe contests. Wisconsin is one of the leading producers of this little bouncy berry and we are very proud of that fact. There are cranberry bogs sprinkled throughout Wisconsin. If you’re ever visiting Wisconsin in the fall, which is when we harvest cranberries, stop by a cranberry bog and take a tour. You’ll be fascinated.
