With an unbalanced diet, however, the supply is not always optimal.

Cranberries in a bowl | Doppelherz
Plant preparations of cranberry and pumpkin seeds form the herbal basis of Doppelherz capsules.
The cranberry (Vaccinium macrocarpon) is also known as the “big cranberry” or cranberry. The latter goes back to its delicate pink-white blossoms, which are reminiscent of a crane’s head due to their shape. The cranberry grows in the high moors of North America and is closely related to the European cranberry and the blueberry.
It was already an important and highly valued food among the indigenous peoples of North America. Cranberry juice was a popular drink and dried berries were often taken along on long hikes and consumed in the winter months. Today, the cranberry is increasingly finding its way into our cuisine.
Because of the bitter substances, acid, pectin and vitamin C it contains, the small berry has a fruity-tart to bitter taste when raw. When cooked, however, its excellent flavour develops!
Cranberries can be used in many ways and can be found, for example, in jellies, jams, chutneys, syrups, cakes, mueslis or sauces.
The berries keep for a few weeks in the fridge and freeze well. If you want to use the fruits, heat them in water only until they burst. Boiling them for longer will make the cranberries bitter again.
Dried berries can be used like sultanas in muffins, for example. However, they should be soaked in hot water for about 15 to 20 minutes to make them even juicier.
