Cranberries in Massachusetts

Season 1 Episode 113 | 26m 46s

Indigenous people have harvested and eaten wild cranberries for millennia. European settlers started cultivating cranberries in Massachusetts in 1816, and the berry remains an integral part of the Bay State’s landscape. Capri learns how indigenous groups use cranberries in traditional cooking, helps out at a family-owned cranberry bog on Cape Cod and samples various cranberry-inspired dishes.
