Depending on how you store them, cranberries can stay fresh as long as a year and still retain their nutrients, according to the Cranberry Institute. Fresh, frozen and sauced berries will all have a different shelf life.
According to Natureripe Farms, fresh cranberries should be refrigerated shortly after picking to maximise their shelf life. If kept in the refrigerator they will stay fresh for as long as six weeks.
Fresh berries can also be frozen to prolong their vitality. According to the Cranberry Institute, fresh cranberries placed in the freezer will stay nutrient rich for nine months to a year.
Cranberry sauce can be made with a variety of recipes, but typical cranberry sauce that consists of berries, water and sugar will stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to four days. Frozen cranberry sauce in an airtight container will stay fresh for about a year, according to the Cranberry Institute.
