Cranberries however are associated with Northern countries in Scandinavia. For me, cranberries stand for Finland. So here we combine the North of Finland and the South of Italy in one delicious recipe.
As a vegetarian recipe, it is of course very healthy. It is also ready in no time. This recipe proves that you can also use cranberries outside the Christmas period.
Some people claim that cranberries are the healthiest food in the world. Healthy they are for sure. If you want a long discussion, mention it at the table 🙂
Cranberries grow in the northern latitudes, in cooler regions. That is why I associate them always with Scandinavia, more specifically Finland. But they are also very popular in North America and Canada.
