I have a bag of fresh cranberries. What should I do with them?

I'm not that big of a fan of cranberries, but what about some sort of chutney? In London I had a really great meal of a cheese and spinach pie with cranberry chutney.

Hmm. If I made chutney, I'd have to give it to someone. I don't eat much in the way of condiments. (Although that cheese and spinach pie sounds fabulous!) Thanks for the suggestion, though!

Oooh, I love cranberries. There are so many fabulous recipes out there! I love cranberry coffee cake, liks this: http://www.donogh.com/cooking/holiday/crancake.shtml

I also love making a cocktail of champagne and cranberry juice and plopping a few cranberries in. Mmmmmm...

Cranberries freeze well. You can use a few at a time in oatmeal, or toss some into an apple pie, or blend them into a smoothie, or add them to homemade applesauce (which then goes nicely on top of a pork chop, if you happen to have a pork chop.) Or the whole bag, frozen, makes an excellent ice pack ...

Since I think I have a little over two cups, I think I'll make the coffeecake EGT recommends, and keep a handful around in the freezer for just such purposes.

(I like coffeecake -- for some reason, we didn't have it when I was a kid, probably because my mother isn't a baking hobbyist and in any case disapproves of "dessert" for breakfast. (Jam on pancakes is OK.) So it always seemed incredibly indulgent when we went somewhere and someone else served it. Cake! In the morning!)

That does sound good! Also, cake! Anytime is a good time for cake! Mmm, cake ...

Friday is Cake Day in my régime: After work, I stop by a local bakery that sells leftover cake by the slice, and indulge.

I'm late to the party, and my reply is a rather tongue in cheek one: Put them in a bathtub and pretend you're in a bog. :)

*is puzzled* Why would I want to be in a bog?

A cranberry bog! It wasn't a good joke. :)
