Re: Anyone seen cranberries for sale???

I was literally just at GLOBUS Bahnhofstr. yesterday and bought three bags of FRESH cranberries, and two cans of packed pumpkin for Thursday. they have it, and I'm sure Jelmoli has it as well. Haven't seen COOP, but you might as well go for the fresh stuff, right?

Here's a nice looking cranberry sauce recipe: http://www.reluctantgourmet.com/oran...erry_sauce.htm

good luck!

Have you tried Jelmoli at the Bahnhofstrasse? I think I might have seen Oceanspray cranberry gel there a few years ago.

Re: Anyone seen cranberries for sale???

I saw Oceanspray fresh cranberries in Coop, where the chopped salads and fruit salads and some herbs are. I have no idea about the price since I don't celebrate Thanksgiving but thought of giving people who needed them a heads up

Re: Anyone seen cranberries for sale???

also, in lausanne at the saturday market i found ocean spray fresh cranberries for sale for 3 chfs a bag!!!! pretty unbelievable considering the price i paid for them last year at globus. for those of you in lausanne- it's the stall with tropical fruit (pomegranate seeds, papayas, mangos, etc) across from globus and in front of h and m. made them for an early thanksgiving dinner on sunday and they were delicious!!!

i'll get more to make some fresh cranberry juice!

Re: Anyone seen cranberries for sale???

340 gms for approx 5.25 at Coop (Central) and Migros (Limmatplatz) in Zurich today. These were not the usual Ocean Spray and more expensive than I remember from last year.

Re: Anyone seen cranberries for sale???

I saw fresh cranberries around Thanksgiving time so I thought... hey, no problem! Yesterday I was at Coop, Migros, 2 Manors, and Globus here in Chur and found absolutely nothing. I even called the Bio-laden and asian market this morning *sigh* ... so instead of last minute preparations, today will be a day for the grand cranberry hunt Any idea if any place in east-Switzerland has fresh cranberries at this time of year? Thanks!

Re: Anyone seen cranberries for sale???

Actually just called all coops, migros, and manors between Chur and Sargans. Apparently they all stopped carrying them around 2 weeks ago. Super *slaps head* Any other ideas for stores which may still carry them?

Re: Anyone seen cranberries for sale???

I was in Coop Sihlcity in the morning and could not find cranberries there. I bought them in Migros before but after reading this thread, I'm having less hope...

Re: Anyone seen cranberries for sale???

The large coop in Heimberg, near Thun had some packets earlier this week, I bought two. A few weeks ago, I cooked down something like 8 bags that I had in my freezer for most of last year.

Was this a bad year for them, I wonder. Well next year I'm going to shop early and often and hoard them again. They last in the freezer.

Re: Anyone seen cranberries for sale???

For those new to Switzerland, note that fresh cranberries are now for sale (I saw them in Globus Luzern yesterday, and they are probably also at Migros and Luzern). Put a few bags in your freezer for use at Thanksgiving and Christmas. In a few weeks they will be gone again.

Re: Anyone seen cranberries for sale???

Fresh cranberries are in at the Migros in Kloten (Ocean Spray). You can also get jars of cranberry sauce in Migros, Coop and Ikea.
