You don’t really “pick” cranberries (they are floating on the water when they’re harvested) You have to wade out to gather them if you aren’t doing it commercially.Cranberries are quite different from Lingonberries. More acidic in a sharp way. We got those in Scandinavia too, but nobody picts them.
Next time you venture into civilisation, try to find a swedish lingonberry sauce, Felix brand. Felix Lingonberry Sauce.
If the town is truly civilised, it will have an IKEA store with a Swedish Shop attached.

The modern way on commercial large farms
