I know that you can get them in a jar. Go to a good supermarket and have a look. They will be near the pickles and bottled sauces.

Try your local fresh fruit & veg market - I saw a huge pile of fresh cranberries here in Krakow today.

Thanks evryone. I need fresh cranberries not the ones in a jar, so i'll try the fruit and veg markets. That would have been my first thought anyway, but was told that there aren't any in Warsaw (fresh crannberries not fruit and veg markets!).

Will be flying out of Friday, so should have time to find some. Here's the recipe if anyone interested.

Cranberry stuffed apples
230g jar cranberries sauce
50g fresh or defrosted cranberries
6 medium Cox or Braeburn apples
25g butter
2 tsp golden caster sugar

Mix the cranberry sauce and cranberries in a bowl. Cut a thin slice off the bottom of the apples. Score the skin all round their middles, then tunnel out the stalks and cores. Stand the apples on a shallow baking tray. Pile the cranberry mix into the cavities, top with a dot of butter and scatter over the sugar. Heat oven to fan 180C/conventional 200C/gas 6. Bake the apples for 20-30 minutes until soft and starting to split and the cranberries are oozing juice.

Had some help from my Warsaw friends.................I should be able to get everything I need here:

Her is my cranberry relish recipe. I am asked to make it each time I'm invited to dinner for Thanksgiving.

2 cans whole cranberry sauce 16oz
1 can crushed pineapple 20 oz, drained
1 bag frozen whole strawberries 16 oz, defrosted
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

mix all together in a bowl and chill at least a few hours
