Did you know?
Cranberries are light to dark red when ripe and should only be used when ripe. Fresh (and raw) cranberries are rather bitter and hard, so about 95% of cranberries are sent to be processed and used to make cranberry juices and sauces. Cranberries have moderate levels of vitamin c, dietary fiber as well as vitamins E, K and A along with a good amount of calcium, iron, manganese and potassium. Cranberries have been recently marketed as a “superfruit” due to their high nutrient content and antioxidant qualities.
Who is Amy?
Amy’s Cranberry Candy began with Grandma Amy many years ago. She needed some tasty treats for little children, but the only treats available were too sweet, too salty or just plain unhealthy. She needed something healthy but also something children would happily eat.
Amy knew cranberries were healthy but wondered how she could get children to eat them. Knowing children liked sweets, Amy set out to try various recipes and finally created her secret, yet simple, Amy’s Cranberry Candy. Her family still uses her original recipes in the company’s cranberry creations.
