Lingonberries Anyone?

Lingonberries

Another Autumn sign. I like my lingonberries with meatballs and potatoes. And Vargtass, which is a drink made of lingon lemonade and vodka. Skål!

I had to look "lingonberries" up. If we have them in the US, I haven't seen them. They look like our cranberries. Nice photo.

Wow, overload. I've heard of lingonberries but we don't have them here. Are they related to cranberries? They look a lot like them.

You call then Cowberry in North America Jack and Bob.

I do remember lingonberries from my childhood. I'm assuming they grew in Minnesota. I also remember smorgasbords and lutefisk. Ugh re the latter.

I think I'd like to try those lingonberries with meatballs and potatoes. That sounds like a great combination. This is a wonderful, colorful shot.

Never heard of them. Please describe the taste, smell and texture.

What a great image Steffe, so these berries can be used in savoury AND sweet dishes I'm guessing. Interesting!!

If you have an IKEA where you live I bet you can get some meatballs with lingonberry there.

I was introduced to lingonberries at IKEA and love it. I now prefer it to cranberries.
