  1. Place lingonberries in a large pot with the water and bring to a boil. Boil for 5 to 10 minutes, and skim off any foam from the surface. Stir in sugar, bring to a rapid boil, and continue boiling for a few more minutes.
  2. Ladle jam into sterile jars, leaving 1/4 inch of headspace. Cover with lids, and screw on rings. Process in a hot water bath for 10 minutes to seal. Refrigerate jam once the jar has been opened.

Love lingonberry jam but had to substitute with cranberries. I haven't been able to find them around here. :( Sorry for the post without making this exact recipe.

I've never made this jam but it looks like the same kind they sell at IKEA - I eat it straight from the jar with nothing else))) Lingonberries being one of my favorite berries can recommend usin...

This recipe is awsome i love making swedish recipes! i will make this again

I found a massive patch of lingonberries and was given some as well. I made this with a stevia blend instead of just sugar. It was still delicious and one of my favorite jams!
