Maple-Glazed Cranberries Yields 1 1/2 cups Crimson, sweet-tart cranberries add sparkle to our Lovely Lemon Layer Cake but won't give you a sugar rush. Fresh cranberries are available from September until December. Buy extra cranberries while they're in season and freeze them to use year round.

1/4 cup maple syrup
1-1/2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
Pinch of sea salt
1/2 teaspoon orange extract
