THE LIBRARY OF FRAGRANCE - Cranberry
Cranberries are one of only three fruits native to North America — the other two are blueberries and Concord grapes. This tasty little berry was a staple in the diets of American Indians long before the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock. They used cranberry juice to dye their rugs and blankets a colorful red. And, they believed the cranberry had special powers to calm the nerves. Although various Indian tribes had different names for the cranberry, it was the Pilgrims’ name that outlasted them all. They called the fruit “crane berry” because the cranberry plant’s tiny stem and pink blossoms resembled the neck, head, and beak of cranes. Over time, the word shorted to “cranberry”. We have our own memories of the cranberry bogs of Massachusetts. The fall sun warmed our shoulders. Atlantic breezes carried with them the salty pungent scent of the cranberry bogs, and maybe pine, making swirling whirlpools in the tall grass. A storybook New England fall moment. With Cranberry from the Library of Fragrance, make your own New England moment.
