Cranberries are a small, hard, smooth-skinned, round to oval-shaped, bright red berry that is native to North America. It is also known by the names craneberry, bounceberry, bearberry, cowberry, or lingonberry. The American Indians used the cranberry as both a food and a medicine. Sailors as well as settlers traveling westward were known to have used cranberries as a way to ward off scurvy. Today we know that cranberries are high in Vitamin C and are also used as an antioxidant.
