A Sea of Red: Cranberry Season in South Jersey

Crisp Air 
Autumn Leaves 
Scarlett Cranberries! 

The New Jersey Pinelands 
shares its bounty with the world. 


Rather than pick each berry individually, 
a method of wet harvesting was created. 

The bog is flooded with water and the cranberries float 
to the surface for collecting. 

Vintage Cranberry Crates

They are shipped to an Ocean Spray site 
where they are prepared for sale 
ready for your fall recipes. 

Did you know Ocean Spray is owned by the cranberry farmers themselves? 

Here's a yummy recipe we made last year with cranberries. 
The tartness disappears during cooking.

That makes me happy that Ocean Spray is owned by the farmers.
