Dried cranberries sweetened with cane sugar
These bittersweet berries come from Canada. A fresh and fruity berry with many possibilities.
Canadian cranberriesCranberry plants are evergreen vines and like wet soil, sand and peat. That is why cranberries are also called cranberries. Cranberries love water. Not only for drinking from the ground, but also for the flooding technique used to harvest them. Not an easy berry. But Canadian farmers use a combination of traditional and new techniques to grow their 'cranberries'. This way we can enjoy this sweet!
The cranberry harvest is from early to mid-fall, when the cranberries are a glossy deep red. The berries sold fresh are harvested dry. To harvest cranberries for processing, the farmer lets the peat overflow a few inches and a mechanical beater knocks the berries into the water. When they float, farmers pump the berries into trucks for transport.
How healthy are they?
But there's more!. Aboriginal Canadians knew they have medicinal properties. Recent research shows that the powerful phytonutrients in these berries have a remarkable range of health benefits. Cranberries contain nutrients that prevent bacteria from attaching to cell walls. These protect against organisms that cause stomach ulcers and gum disease.
