Most people would probably prefer to suck lemons than munch on raw cranberries, the archetype of tartness. But, oh, what a difference a little sugar makes! Like most dried cranberries, razz cranberries contain sugar, but they offer added interest with an infusion of raspberry flavoring. That flavoring gentles the tartness without overpowering it with sweetness. The result is a dried fruit ready for deployment as a snack, a topping (for cereal, salads and ice cream), the key flavor-popping ingredient in muffins, or a unique addition to such savory dishes as rice pilaf or turkey stuffing.
The American cranberry got its name from its English cousin, originally known as the crane berry. The American version (Vaccinium macrocarpon) is larger than the English (Vaccinium oxycoccos) and has flourished in North America since the end of the last Ice Age. The holes gouged by receding glaciers became the perfect boggy habitat for cranberries. The Wampanoag Indians of southeastern Massachusetts had been picking wild cranberries for thousands of years before the Mayflower anchored in Plymouth Harbor. That group of Native Americans numbered among the first people to use dried cranberries on a major scale. The dried berries were an essential ingredient of pemmican, a blend of dried meat and animal fat that provided nourishment through the harsh winter and served as a portable food during long hunting and trapping expeditions.
Dried cranberries were the perfect choice for pemmican, because their antioxidants retarded spoilage of the meat and fat. Even dried, cranberries retain their antioxidant oomph and have been credited with helping to prevent urinary tract infections, macular degeneration, blood clots and stomach ulcers.
We offer our razz cranberries in bulk, by the 25-pound case as well as by the one or five pound bag. We also offer plain dried cranberries, without the raspberry infusion.
