Cranberry Recipes

  • BOUNCING BERRY ALERT! Cranberries were first called bearberries because bears like to eat them. Later they were called crane berries because when the vine flowers blossom, they look like the head and beak of a crane. After awhile, the name was shortened to cranberries. And, of course, they are also called the bouncing berries or bitter berries.
