It's been tough for shoppers to find fresh cranberries this holiday season.
That's bad news for cooks - and eaters - but good news for New Jersey growers.
The state is ranked third in cranberry production. The top two states - Massachusetts and Wisconsin - have not been able to match last year's record production. And with growing year-round popularity for the fruit, that's creating a shortage.
The farmers who harvest the berries in southern New Jersey's Pinelands are being paid a premium for their crop.
Most of the New Jersey crop is processed rather than sold fresh to consumers.
