Cranberries are unlike any other fruit in the world. The last week in September marks the start of the Cranberry Harvest Season which lasts until the end of October in Wisconsin, the largest producer of the berry. All around the globe, the cranberry plays an important role in different holiday traditions and it is also a great contributor for a healthier way of life.
So, for many reasons at Watson Lake Inn Bed & Breakfast we embrace the Cranberry Harvest Season and despite the fact the berry is not a local plant in Arizona, we are featuring cranberries for breakfast, dinner and more -dried and fresh- for pancakes, scones and quick breads and seasonal condiments, such as our famous four ingredient all natural cranberry orange relish.
Recent studies have shown that cranberries could help protect cells from damage that may contribute to certain types of cancer. Similar to red wine or grape juice, a recent study conducted by UW-La Crosse researchers found that cranberry juice contains anti-oxidants, which may be beneficial in preventing heart problems. Anti-oxidants help protect cells against oxidation, a process that contributes to hardening of the arteries. And preliminary research results show that cranberries have the ability to decrease total cholesterol and LDL, or “bad” cholesterol, and increase blood flow, just to name a few.
