A Tradition of Cranberries

Cranberries are unlike any other fruit in the world. All around the globe, the cranberry plays an important role in our holiday traditions and a healthy way of life.

The history of the cranberry dates back hundreds of years. Native Americans, long before the Pilgrims arrived in 1620, mixed deer meat and mashed cranberries to make pemmican—a survival cake that kept for long periods of time. They also believed in the medicinal qualities of cranberries. Medicine men valued the cranberry as an ingredient in poultices to draw poison from arrow wounds. The rich red juice of the cranberry served as a natural dye for rugs, blankets and clothing. The Delaware Indians in New Jersey revered the cranberry as a symbol of peace.
