A sweet but still tart jam with Swedish lingonberries. This goes really well with classic Swedish meatballs or fried herring (Swedish style).

I have made lingonberry (we call them Partridge berries here) jam by this recipe and it's pretty good. I prefer to slowly start the jam on a low heat with the frozen berries. When you do this there is no need to add water as enough juice will be released by the thawing berries to produce a slightly thicker jam. To bump up the flavour and texture as well as extend your berries you can add up to an equal amount of peeled chopped apple which is excellent. This berry is absolutely beautiful used in muffins loaves/cakes pies as a substitute for cranberries in sauces served with turkey etc. An interesting aside is that lingonberries are the best plant food source of vitamin D! This berry is a staple in my neck of the woods. Read More

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 using them everywhere in place of cranberries - so tasty and healthy as they are very good for you! Read More

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! Read More
