Cranberry

Have you been buying something with cranberry lately? Maybe cranberry jam or sauce? Or cranberry juice?

A lot of cranberry grows in Russia, in different regions of it. Russia exports cranberry to other countries where it is being processed in some deserts and so on.

Here are some photos of how the cranberry is being collected and turned into an extract in Russia, which is later being used in production of the above mentioned products.

    This site is great, I enjoy it because in one way or another it portrays every day life. And if you are looking for something distictivly Russian, I think I have it for you:

    In almost every picture on this site, there is at least one guy who is wearing work clothing and a camouflage jacket. It seems that Camo’ is popular amoung the Rooskies!

  2. An American critcizing Russian juices reminds me of Germans criticizing American beer. For whatever reason most Americans prefer watered down and bitter lagers like Budweiser or Miller. Why? I don’t know, “familiarity” I would assume– there is plenty of good American beer available, but the cheap beer sells more. Perhaps it’s the same in Russia?

    And as for LR– she admits that Russians make little money, and so cannot afford to buy high quality juice, and yet in another post criticizes Russians for buying cheaper bootlegs of western dvds!

    At least she must be pleased about Russia’s “short adult lifespan and declining population”. (Don’t hold your breath waiting for Russia to disappear anytime soon, LR).

  5. Interesting, before I immigrated to America I’ve seen the same kind of cranberry photoshoot in a magazine.. and I thought it was something specific to America. I guess it’s the same thing back in Russia and in the US.
