Is Anyone Familiar With Using Wild Cranberries?

Earlier this fall, while in Maine, I picked quite a few wild cranberries, and brought them home and froze them. While smaller, they have a wonderful flavor. I made some scones with them, and they were quite bitter; apparently, I should have sweetened them first, but am not sure how to do that without cooking them. They do make wonderful cranberry sauce; their flavor is much more complex than the cultivated ones. Can anyone give me some good ideas on how to use them?
