Canned vs. fresh cranberries?

CHICAGO (AP) - The love of canned cranberries at Thanksgiving seems to be a bit of dietary discard considering the recent focus on home cooking instead of processed food.

But many devotees insist they take their annual holiday staple no other way than from a can - preferably one with ridges.

How many fans there are is impossible to tell. But judging by the 86.4 million of cans Ocean Spray sells a year, there are a lot. Devotees say the reason is simple: Canned sauce reminds them of what was served at Thanksgiving when they were kids.

Devotees say they can detect the jelly-like roll by its signature ridges. Some have perfected techniques to get it out so the sauce log retains the stripes.
