Foraging--High-bush cranberries

There are no berries on the high-bush cranberry bush (tree?) at the house in the City, but there are berries on several out at the farm (the berries on the one in the City dried up thanks to the drought). I usually make jelly...wondering what other folks do with high-bush cranberries? Anyone have a high-bush cranberry wine recipe?

How lucky you are!

I'd make cranberry sauce and can it, and cranberry mustard.

You are so lucky! Since moving to the city we have nothing to forage :(
The only things growing on the side of the roads are dandelions and purslane and you never know how many drunks have peed on them lol! We don't have a garden anymore because we live in a flat, I'm thinking of maybe planting some herbs and putting them in pots on my balcony.
I know a couple of wild plants but I would love to learn what else I can pick without poisoning myself!

No cranberries but loads of walnuts, blackberries and earlier in the year made Elderflower champagne which is beautiful in summer
