The Cranberry is one of the few fruits that is native to North America. The Native Americans enjoyed Cranberries as early as 1550, and would consume them fresh, or mashed them and blended them with cornmeal and breads. Fresh Cranberries have the tendency of being hard and bitter, so more than 95% of Cranberries are processed and used for an array of applications.
