Substitute for cranberries in Europe

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi, we are visiting my wife's family in germany. My mother in law loves cranberries and would like a Christmas turkey with cranberry stuffing, but I was not informed of this until we arrived. There are no cranberries of any sort to be found here. Does anyone know of a good cranberry substitute available in Europe? I thought of red currant, but I'm not too certain. Any ideas?

They should be available. They might even grow there. I know they do in the north of Holland.
They are called preisselbeeren, if i remember correct. Veenbessen in Dutch.
Have you tried finding them online?
If you cant find them I would substitute with red currants

Lingonberry. You should be able to find them quite easily and or in a jar. Taste is very similar to cranberry .

Definitely Preiselbeeren! Usually available as a coarse jam in any supermarket. They're a staple "condiment" in Germany to go with game.

 

Cheers,
