Dried Cranberries

I've been using dried cherries for similar flavor. They're less likely to be sweetened.

I tried dehydrating my own cranberries but they were tough (might need to use oil), a bit tricky (you have to boil them till they ALL pop), and too tart (might need sweetened with something).

Kirsteen:

I don't know if this company will ship to the UK, but try Cherry Bay Orchards:

This company definitely does international shipping, but the cranberries are sweetened with apple juice:

Waitrose has some that have pineapple juice from concentrate and sunflower oil as a glazing agent, which I'm not sure is any better than the Tesco version.

Dried cranberries are the only dried fruit that I like too :(

Edited to add: Just found this site that has freeze dried cranberries. http://www.healthysupplies.co.uk/dried-cranberries.html (and dried cranberries sweetened with apple juice), but still with the sunflower oil.

thanks for the link Annabel, they look good if not exactly cheap :(. Dana, i might give it another try. I've got a dehydrator but never had any luck with cranberries but I think I probably didn't get them all split first.

Yeah - I managed to get a couple of bags of frozen ones in Whole Foods. I boiled them and dehydrated them while I was making jerky. Now for the first time i have dried cranberries that are actually tart. I love them in coleslaw and thrown in with cooked cabbage.
