Word About Cranberry

These shiny scarlet berries are grown in huge, sandy bogs on low, trailing vines. Cranberries are also called bounce berries because ripe cranberries bounce. They’re know as cranberries in some areas after the shape of the shrub’s pale pink blossoms, which resemble the heads of the cranes often seen wading through the cranberry bogs. Cranberries grow wild in northern Europe and in northern climates of North America.

They’re extensively cultivated mainly in Massachusetts, Wisconsin, Washington and Oregon. Harvested between Labor Day and Halloween, the peak market period for cranberries is October through December. Cranberries are usually sold in 12-ounce plastic bags and can be found in your grocers produce section. Stock up because cranberries freeze super. Just toss the cranberries, bag in all, into the freezer. They’ll keep at least a year.
