The berry that delights the taste buds with it’s tangy rather than confectioning powers, has many more powerful elements than the eye can see. The ringed, oval, gelatin tube graciously displayed next to your Thanksgiving Turkey actually starts out white and morphs into its vibrant, deep red tonnages as it fully ripens. You see the Cranberry is actually an antioxidant and nutrient rich ‘super food’ that abounds with benefits to the Cardiovascular & Immune Systems, has anti-Cancer agents, even traced to having anti- clotting properties and helping to prevent recurring urinary tract infections…
Now, we bet that Cranberry Sauce is starting to look a little better, wouldn’t you say?
