Preparing cranberries

With fresh cranberries just coming to ­market, now’s the time to stock up. Preserving the tangy taste means a year’s protection against ­urinary troubles, dental plaque, and maybe even cholesterol and cancer. 

Nearly 50 percent of all women have had a ­urinary tract infection (UTI) at some point in their lives. And for those who have had one, they’re more likely to have another.

Long a folk remedy for UTIs, cranberries have moved into the medical mainstream. During the past two decades, numerous articles have verified not only their ability to cure and/or prevent UTIs but have also suggested that compounds found in cranberries may inhibit tumors, dental caries, and the oxidation of LDL cholesterol.

Although antibiotics and other aggressive forms of intervention may be required to cure UTIs, cranberries can be the first line of defense to prevent their occurrence, and may be sufficient treatment to eliminate some established infections.
