For people who love a tart treat, cranberries are second to none in flavor. They boost the immune system and prevent all sorts of problems in the body. Once you have fresh cranberry juice, you'll never go back to bottled. Once you cook these colorful berries and dilute it with water, some of the tartness will subside. (Tip: Don' t discard the cranberry seeds. They are a big part of why there are so many benefits derived from fresh cranberry juice.)
