Whole-dried cranberry

Not only would the Thanksgiving celebration in North America be unthinkable without the roast turkey slathered in cranberry sauce, but the curative properties of the versatile cranberry kept Native Americans alive all year round, and its role in history reminds us of our interdependence with the natural world. The scarlet berry is known as “America’s founding fruit.” The indigenous people used its juice to protect themselves from scurvy, alleviate fever, kill off infections and heal wounds. Today, scientists have found the fruit wards off various cancers. The polyphenolic compounds in cranberries can inhibit the growth of tumour cells. Its infection-fighting properties block the attachment of bacteria to tissues, promote healthy teeth and provide immune support. Rich in antioxidants, cranberries pack a nutritional punch to any dish. The tangy berries add zest to rice puddings, bread and muffins and colour to hot oatmeal. You can use them in salad dressings or simply indulge in a handful of dried cranberries mixed with roasted nuts for an afternoon snack. Mixed with pears and apples, cranberries make a finger licking pie filling. The small, round red fruit and its health promoting powers are essential to keep you strong all year round.
