Cucina Pasta-bilities: The original superfood - Cranberry

I’m sure you’re all familiar with Cucina Antica’s tart and tangy Cranberry Sauce which is an essential for all Holiday meals!

Why do we eat Cranberry sauce alongside our poultry dishes during the Holidays? Europeans generally made sour fruit sauces to pair with meats, generally wild fowl or game, and most likely adapted their recipes to incorporate the local cranberry, introduced to them by the Native Americans. 

Cranberries are also high in nutritional value, with a high percentage of antioxidants. Some Native American tribes used cranberries to treat a number of illnesses – fevers, childbirth illnesses, or cramps. Along with their antioxidant properties, they are also high in Vitamin C, fiber, and Vitamin E.

Now that you know about the cranberry’s high nutritional value, feel free to pile a little more on your plate this Holiday!
