Since 2009, the founders of Cape Cod Select have made it their goal to stock local grocery stores with whole, frozen cranberries that can be found year-round. After years of hard work, their dreams became a reality. Today Cape Cod Select has a reputation of growing and selling the finest cranberries. Cape Cod cranberries can now be found in grocery stores across the U.S. And while we love frozen cranberries, we have a couple of other Cape Cod products we’re excited to show you.
The Cranberry Chutney is a recipe that’s been passed down for generations. Today, you can buy it and use it with your chicken, pork, or even ice cream. We love that only seven ingredients were used to make this delicious chutney. Bonus: every ingredient is easy to pronounce. The Cranberry Chutney is available for purchase in either a 2-pack or a 4-pack.
The newest addition to the Cape Cod Select brand is the Cranberry Mustard. Available in packs of 2 (10oz) jars, this mustard is superb when you spread it on a sandwich, eat it with pretzels, or dip your favorite veggies in it.
Bring new flavors into your home and new life into your traditional holiday dishes when you add either Cranberry Chutney or Cranberry Mustard to your pantry. Cape Cod Select products are palate-pleasers the whole family will enjoy. Add these to your shopping cart!
