Known for their tangy¸ refreshing taste¸ Cranberries (vaccinium oxycoccos) were supposedly part of the first Thanksgiving in 1621¸ but did not become a national tradition until after the Civil War. A small evergreen shrub¸ which grows in mountain forests and damp bogs from Alaska to Tennessee¸ the Cranberry bush produces pink or purple flowers in spring and bright red berries in the fall. High in Vitamin C¸ Cranberries were a favorite among early sailors for preventing scurvy. Cranberries make flavorful jams and preserves and are used in a variety of beverages. It was 19th century German chemists who researched and defined many of Cranberry’s valuable health benefits. Natural Herb Teas that are Good for You and the Environment.
