Cramp bark is a deciduous shrub that was first cultivated in Guelderland, a Dutch province, and grows four to five metres tall. It is indigenous to England and North America.
In Norway and Sweden, the berries of cramp bark are used to flavour pastes of honey and flour, and in Siberia they are used to distil spirits from fermented flour. In Canada, the berries are used as a substitute for cranberries when making a piquant jelly. In Turkey, the berries of cramp bark are turned into a traditional beverage known as Gilaburu juice, a water fermented drink, which is rich in acetic acid.
The bark of cramp bark is harvested in the spring and has a strong odour and mildly astringent, bitter taste.[1,4]
In traditional herbal medicine, cramp bark was used in America and Canada, and was employed by the Eclectic practitioners of the 19th century where it was used for a variety of conditions as well as a social beverage.[1-6]
