Cranberry Herb - Herbal Tea
Cranberry, associated with Thanksgiving to much of the United States is found in bogs through out the Northern Hemisphere. The Cranberry grows in small dense bushes with dark pink flowers and produces the delectable berry commonly eaten with Turkey on Thanksgiving.
Cranberry is also known for its decorative, culinary and medicinal properties and used in capsule form, eaten, juiced and to flavor teas and beverages and even used in crafts. Cranberry is a major commercial crop for many Canadian Providences and US states and widely exported.
The Cranberries natural appeal and properties including being high in anti-oxidants makes this fruit among the listed Super Foods. Cranberry cultivation occurs most often where the water table is high and the harvesting of it is generally done by flooding the area and combing the bushes which causes the berry to float to the surface and flow with the water when drained.
95% of Cranberries are processed into juices and other products leaving just 5% sold as fresh. In order to sell the Cranberry as a fresh fruit it must be harvested dry and not by the usual flooding method.
Herbal Tea Recipe
Cranberries teas can be prepared by simmering the berries in water for about 30 minutes (amount of berries and water varies by desire), other teas or juices and herbs can be added and steeped for about an hour before straining. This tea can be enjoyed while hot or cold. Adagio Teas offers a large selection of tea infused with cranberries. My favorite is the Cranberry Black Tea.
