  2. 2. If you use fresh cranberries, make sure to rinse them first and pick out any that are bad or not fully ripe. If you want to use frozen cranberries, you'll need to let them thaw first. 
  3. 3. Make sure all the other ingredients are well mixed before adding the eggs. This will make sure that the muffins have a more even structure.
