Every fall Lithuanian ancestors rushed to forests for goods such as hazelnuts or cranberries. They were used to enrich desserts, meats, cheese. It was believed that hazelnuts help to retain youth and healthy heart.
The red and odorous cranberry – a life berry – was an indispensable cure for various diseases. Old documents state that cranberry juice disinfects wounds. Since the old days this berry (also known as the Northern lemon) has been used in pastries, tea and even sauerkraut.
