Dried cranberries are made by partially dehydrating fresh cranberries, a process similar to making grapes into raisins.
They are popular in trail mix, salads, and bread, with cereals or eaten on their own.
Dried cranberries are sometimes referred to as “craisins,” though the word “Craisin” is a registered trademark of Ocean Spray Cranberries, Inc.and cannot be officially applied to dried cranberries from other manufacturers. (source)
