Fall means cranberry harvest time. This is a great video of the process with a bit of a twist.

Funny that I was watching that video this morning. It is the first time I've seen how they harvest it.
Yes. Most folks don't know that the cranberries grow on low bushes. They only flood the field for harvesting. Bet no one ever thought of the visuals of wakeboarding here.
Ray lives by some cranberry bogs near Boston. That has to be neat to watch every fall. Maybe we should ask him if he rides the boards?
Lingonberries (mountain cranberry) around my house. The cranberry that thinks it's a blueberry, small and juicy like a blueberry with cranberry flavor. A handful of each on your cereal in the a.m. and you've got all the anti-oxidant you could want. Actually I think they are grown commercially around the PNW?
Lingonberries are a favorite of the local Scandinavian population. They are tart like a cranberry, but good when sweetened in a jam or sauce. In Sweden and Norway, reindeer and elk steak is traditionally served with gravy and lingonberry sauce, much like our turkey and cranberry sauce.
Aaah, used to roam the crane-berry bogs in the 'woods' around my house as a kid in MA. The wasted ones on the ground would pop under your shoes and stain them.
