Holiday Decorating With Cranberries
Sort cranberries before using them, removing any that are mushy or soft. Let them air dry.
Cranberries float. If you expect to keep them under water, cover them with something to weigh them down.
Change the water used with cranberries if it becomes murky or clouded. In water, cranberries should last about two weeks.
Cranberries will tarnish real silver; use stainless steel or another silver look-alike.
