Cranberry (aka Bounceberry) / New Jersey / Nov. 2006

New Jersey's native Indians, the Lenni-Lenape, used these glossy red berries for food, medicine, and as a symbol of peace during tribal feasts.

Cranberries are an antioxidant and high in phytochemicals, so it's one of the healthiest things you can eat. Studies suggest that it lowers cholesterol, may help prevent heart disease and certain cancers, and may provide protection against loss of coordination and memory in old age. Sailors took them to sea to help prevent scurvy since they are also high in Vitamin C.
