Where can I find an image of a cranberry scoop? How were cranberry scoops used?
Cranberry scoops were introduced in the 1850’s as an aid in the manual picking of cranberries. The first cranberry scoops were wooden baskets with comb-like wooden teeth that would pull the berries off the vines into the basket. Antique cranberry scoops are often sold on the Internet and there are companies that sell reproductions to use as decorative magazine racks. If you enter the phrase “cranberry scoop” in an Internet search engine, you should be able to find an image fairly quickly.
