Ok, so this was given to me years ago…it is the best. Just try it.  The sauce is put on the cake AFTER it is baked for 40 minutes in 350 degree oven.

Thanks Toon for these photos…I finally got around to posting! I have to say, this is really different than growing them in Wisconsin…

A new way to grow Cranberries?

2 Dec

Not too long ago I received word from a reader who is growing Cranberries in a different way. Check out these photos and descriptions of how he is doing it.

The plants grow in 1,3 meter planters on a frame of old 51 mm heating pipes. Everything had to be cheap because I didn’t know if this way of growing will work  about 8 years ago. It turned out quite well. So I gowing to plant 3 times more meters tabletop this winter. I’m looking now for a good variety, perhaps you have some suggestions. Over here it is diffcult to become the newest variety’s with good potentials. I have collected Pilgrim, Stevens, Red Star, Crowley and Langlois. Stevens is my main variety. It has a good dark red color because the sun can reach all the berry’s and they drys quikly what is good for storage.

I sent also a few fotos from the tabletopframe to give you an impression.

If anyone wants to chat with this grower, send me a message and I will get you in touch…

I blogged a link before, but here is the visual. I think it is great that Spray is getting into Organic AND they are bringing back 100% pure cranberry.
