Savoring Cranberries

November 22nd, 2010

Question: Which state produces the most cranberries?

Answer: Wisconsin!

In fact, the cranberry, ubiquitous during this time of year given its association with traditional Thanksgiving holiday feasting, is Wisconsin’s leading fruit crop. (View the USDA NASS Cranberry Forecast and Statistics page).

Consult Steenbock’s research guide to the American Cranberry to discover some great resources regarding cranberry cultivation, marketing, and use (including links to online recipe sites).

Additionally, Steenbock librarians have placed some selected cranberry-themed titles from our collection on the display rack, first floor, opposite the stairwell and outside study rooms 107, 108. Feel free to check them out!
