Red berries from a forest shrub, cranberries are picked in cold, mountainous regions. With their tangy taste, they are highly appreciated in the Germanic countries, Scandinavia and Alsace.
Cranberries can be enjoyed as a sweet-and-sour condiment to accompany red meat and game or to flavour marinades. Their use is not limited to savoury dishes. Cranberries are also used in desserts and accompany apples in the making of tarts and compotes. They brighten up vanilla ice cream with their tangy note and bright colour.
