What is it?

It’s scarlet red, tart and grows in the wild on shrubs across North America, North Asia and Northern Europe. Cranberries belong to the Heath family, same as blueberries. Other species grows in Canada and the US. Also called bounce berries, bitter berries and crane berries (because its blossoms look like the head and neck of a crane), this fruit has been enjoyed by humans for hundreds of years. Native Americans were documented to mash cranberries and mix it with deer meat long before the Pilgrims arrived in 1620. In the 1700s, American Indians enjoyed it sweetened with maple syrup. It was also rumoured that the first Thanksgiving dinner was served in Plymouth. By the time 18th century rolled around, cranberries were being exported to England by the colonists. Cranberries were also utilised as dye for clothing, blankets and rugs and even as a symbol of peace. Many years after, cultivation of this super fruit has spread throughout Great Britain, Scandinavia and the US.
