Cranberries are also called cranberries. They belong to the blueberry genus. From the end of August to the beginning of September, the white berries ripen into bright red berries. Under good conditions, cranberries can still ripen from September to October. Cranberries can be found all over the northern hemisphere of the world as they are resistant to frost and can withstand temperatures as low as -22°. Because cranberries taste very bitter-sour due to their high fruit acid content, they are rarely eaten raw. Cranberries are usually cooked with compote and used as a side dish to game dishes. Cranberries contain a lot of vitamin C, B vitamins and vitamin A as well as calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium. Cranberries are much smaller than the large cranberries and have a softer skin.
