  1. What other fruit would go with this? I can’t seem to find frozen cranberries since they aren’t in season. Or can I omit completely and still come out delicious?

    • Hilda Solares
      Hi Noura, you can easily sub blueberries or raspberries for the cranberry. If you decide to omit the berries completely you will still get a delicious skillet pumpkin recipe. ?
