I feel like the Ocean Spray guys are gonna walk up any minute now.
Considering Ocean Spray owns like 95% of the Cranberry output in Canada, I wouldn't be surprised.
TIL Ocean Spray is cooperative. I don't like cranberries so I really never cared to look until now.
Do you get that dry after taste.
What's that about?
Tannins. The same thing that make coffee and tea taste a bit bitter and make your mouth feel dry
Red wine as well. They also give red wine their color.
Tannins don’t, grape skins do. The skins contain the tannins. :)
So white grapes don't have a lot of tannins? Is that why red wine tastes stronger than white wine?
Correct. Usually in white wine production the skins are removed = low/no tannin. Skins are kept on while making reds.
All grapes make white juice. Red wine is made by adding the skins which the wine takes the tannins from. But it’s a rather common misconception that white grapes make white wine and purple grapes make red wine.
What if you made a white wine with skin-on white grapes though. Think of the tannin-y white wine. You could trick everyone.
It means you need to add more vodka.
To me the after taste is like how your mouth tastes after vomiting bile.
I never knew how to accurately describe this until now.
Damn that’s accurate
Kinda. Not nearly that acidic and burning though. And cranberries are full of vitamin C so you should eat those little bitches down!
Well to be fair, cranberries on their own are not really edible. Add a shitton of sugar and you’ve got a multi million dollar drink company.
Remember Ocean Spray cranberry hard candies? Came in a foil and paper wrapper similar to Lifesavers. Those things were amazing!
No, but that sounds so good, I want one. Are they still a thing or no?
while i appreciate ur cynicism, u never know. mcdonalds had discontinued cinnamon melts in my state, which made me think they were gone everywhere for good, but i found out last week they are still cranking them out in Arizona. i hope this man finds his cranberry candies
edit: warms my heart to hear other people are as happy about cinnimelts survival as me
We need more of this kind of optimism in the world
Yeah and it's definitely a thing for discontinued products. Sometimes they only get removed in certain provinces/states/countries, since they're more popular in some locations over others.
You're a good lad.
I’m still waiting for cinnamon crispas to come back. ai haven’t eaten taco bell in at least 20 years, but the day cinnamon crispas return, I will too.
And the CEO of ocean spray said the cranberries are uneditable by humans cause they taste nasty without shit tons of sugar.
I've tried 100% cranberry juice and tbh he's right.
It's hard to find the REAL juice, but it will straight up pucker your butthole.
It’s good if you do a couple tablespoons with water. Make sparkling water and it’s even better
I’m sure you could edit it. I edit it when I was a kid and it was good.
I honestly love the taste of pure cranberries. Co-workers give me strange looks when I eat them...
That shit Craisins
Came here looking for this exact comment
I wanna swim in it
Its like a foot deep
Offer still stands, even if I do
I mean go for it? Just so you know its a flooded field and the cranberries all float to the top. So a slow crawl through foot deep woody plants. I guess no radiation so still technically better than Fallout 4 survival.
Bonus - My fav cran commercial
I have the strong desire to purchase Ocean Spray™ brand cranberries.
As do I. A great need is in me to imbib Ocean Spray™ brand cranberry juice.
Shall we procure Ocean Spray™ brand cranberry juice?
Yes bröthër... Give the Öcëän Spräy
Thats good advertisement, honestly, i actually laughed at this, their commercials arent annoying either like how most tend to be nowadays
The commercial is grand.
Ooh wait. It's, Crand... Right? Right!
There's a video of somebody wakeboarding on it ... I think it was sponsored by Redbull. I'll post if I find the link, I'm on mobile.
Here it is. Wakeboarding begins at 3:30.
At first I was disappointed you didn't just link to the wakeboarding but that was the most artistic cranberry farming video I've ever seen!
Almost felt like I was watching an episode of Chef’s Table.
Man, dones and cheap 4k cameras have really changed the game haven't they?
I wonder if any cranberries were harmed in the making of that film....
But they were bitter
How can you wakeboard without any wakes?
A rope and a high power winch on a truck or tower.
That was very, very cool. Thanks for that.
"You see kids and thats how cranberry juice is made"
Yeah... no. For you obvious non-Canadian, cranberry juice has a very low density and you’ll just end up sinking straight to the bottom. Cranberry juice drownings are very common for young farm children and uneducated tourists like you... If I were you, I’d just be glad with the good old cranberry juice box.... I doubt you want it down your lungs... so don’t swim in it.
The amount of people you successfully trolled with this post is reminds me of the internet of the late 2000s.
But that's... not... cranberry juice... That's a lake...
It looks like a lake, but that’s all vodka.
Lol did you also catch the other half dozen things he got wrong on purpose?
I just read an article in MacLeans! What they were saying that it's quiet possibly going to turn into the next tide pod challenge where people are dared to go into it and they end up not being able to be rescued or get out.
"#dontswiminit" is trending right now.
Much lower density than a pulpy orange juice at 1.25 g/mL to be sure.
They flood the fields, its a retaining pond of sorts
FINALLY. Every time I see a thread about Cranberry harvests, some yokel comes in wanting to swim in it and I never see any common sense comments. Thank you, upvoted for visibility. So many morons lmao
Our home and native land
True patriot love in all of us command.
I don't have any qualms with changing the anthem a bit, but I've always figured this change just has this awkward kinda ring to it.
Well, they played it every morning in school. It's all drilled into our heads so any note that's different really sticks out - and you won't have quite as many chances to sing it to get fully used to it through osmosis. But it's just a familiarity thing, so worries if it sounds off.
Why didn't they change it to "all of our command"?
Because it's trying to say "we are commanded by true and patriot love" in fancy-pants English, not that we actually command true, patriot love like we're all secretly generals. :P
Because that has a different meaning:
True patriot love in all our sons command
is saying "Command true patriot love in all our sons". It's a request the speaker is making to Canada, that Canada would require patriotism in all of its citizens. The word order is funky because of age and songwriting.
Bilingual hockey version or gtfo
I've never read the new lyrics and only hear the song at the rare hockey game I attend. I thought this was a typo. Definitely awkward.
In all thy sons command.
That's cool. Had to look up how it's made. https://youtu.be/XZPXQ7nw_9Y
Awesome video. I like the bit where they say "you can see next years cranberries starting to form next to the grown berry, so farmers have to be very careful when harvesting not to damage next year's crop", and then later..."here's our big wacky smacky machine. It goes wacky smacky and knocks all the berries off by knocking them around a whole lot until they come off the vine".
Thank you for this synopsis
You have a way with words :)
Gee thanks now I have to watch it
That's not what she said... She said they have to nurture two years of the crop at once. It's just next years buds forming they won't fall off easily... They can still become diseased.
TIL you can hire a team of commercial bees
Yes. The almond farmers in CA pretty much rely on the. People don't realized how screwed up the bee population is and how vital it is to many types of produce. It's not getting better either. We should be worried.
i'm worried about the climate, i'm worried about the orangutans, i'm worried about a lot of things, but me worrying doesn't seem to have much of an effect
This worries me. You 10,000 monkeys were our last hope. Now that there’s 9999, I’m not sure we’re going to make it.
Awareness brings the start of change.
Thank you for introducing that channel. I can't stop watching their videos
Thanks for sharing that. I didn't realise until this exact moment that I had no clue how cranberries were grown.
Neat, had no idea. I assumed they grew on trees or bushes.
I mean, they do grow on bushes... they are just flooded for easier harvesting.
I love that channel so much! So many interesting videos.
Do you have to let it linger?
What's in your head?
Pretty sure this is in Chilliwack, BC.
Did not expect to see Chilliwack mentioned on the front page today!
When I was younger, I always thought this is where valley girls came from.
I love driving through Chilliwack because I get to chant Chilliwack wack chilliwack wack Chilliwack.
agreed , this is definately the wack
Yeah I thought it looked familiar.
Can somebody explain the harvesting process? In my head, the cranberries grow on little bushes or some shit and then the farmers flood the feeds and then the cranberries float to the top and then they’re strained out. Is this close?
Cranberries grow on vines. This picture is of a bog that is wet harvested. Wet harvesting involves flooding the bog, then agitating the berries from the vines. The berries get bruised in the process so those berries are the ones that are used for juice and sauce.
The other way of harvesting is dry harvesting. The farmer goes along with a picking machine that combs the berries from the vines then transfers them to a burlap sack. Those are the berries that you see in the stores being sold fresh.
Some times it depends on expected cranberry price and weather which harvest type is performed in a given year.
A large percentage of Massachusetts farms dry harvested this year even ones that normally wet harvest.
This whole thing seemed cooler when I had no idea how it worked.
It's amazing that humans have been able to make machines that can delicately enough comb the berries from the vines then transfer them to a burlap sack.
"Wade Boggs is my third favorite baseball player and my first favorite way to get cranberries" - @cakemittens
RIP Wade Boggs
Often they then have a machine that goes and scoops them off the top while they float there. Then they open little gates into other areas of the bog in order to let the water into the other fields, reusing the same water to harvest as many as possible before releasing the water from the system. Still a pretty huge waste of water (depending on where that water came from).
In central Wisconsin all of the water is pumped from local water ways. The amount of water each farm is allowed to take is very heavily regulated and there are huge fines if a farm uses more than their allotment.
Good to know. Always wondered about those when I drive through WI on I-94. Friend's family owns a cranberry bog in northern WI. They've even used their cranberries in one of their beers here in MN years ago.
The video above says they give it back to the river. And no one has ever lied on the Internet.
In the Vancouver area that's how it's done it goes from farm to farm and then goes back. It's cheaper for the farmers that way especially since they dont have somewhere to dump it.
If it's Chilliwack, that water should flow right back into the Frasier no problem.
Plus we don't exactly have a water shortage in the Lower Mainland
More or less. The main thing missing is that there are machines which basically rotate a wheel to smack the top of the plants/make the water turbulent to knock off the berries.
IMO its a very efficient harvest method. Good thing the plant can survive the flooding.
I don’t understand, which one is Stan Lee?
Didn't expect this on a cranberry post. My fuckin dude.
They are all Stan Lee today. Each and every beautiful one of them.
These are Stan Lee's member berries. They're red for all his Marvel ideas.
This comment made my night.
One could get bogged down in that. Kidding aside, I hope to be eating some of them tasty things soon.
During the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver, BC (technically Richmond), they used cranberries to fill City Hall's fountain. They also put a huge Olympic symbol and Maple leaf and filled those with cranberries too. This was to incorporate our farming and agriculture, but honestly it just looked cool af!
they made Evangelion into a real thing
Just the site of that cleared up my urinary tract infection!
Just ridiculous. This pic was first posted back in 2015 and since then I guarantee you the Canadian government has done absolutely nothing regarding this issue.
This is the town of Chilliwack.
That shit Craisins®️
Until they add sugar, those berries are disgusting!
Idiots, you plant the cranberries in the greenhouse. That way they keep producing even in winter, and you will never have to replant.
What are you on about? The greenhouse is for Ancient Fruit and Ancient Fruit ONLY.
Came here for the Stardew Valley reference. Was not disappointed.
