Lingonberry recipies

The use of lingonberries in the North has a long history. Thanks to their benzoic acid, puréed autumn-picked lingonberries will keep in a cool place without any preservatives until the following spring. Thanks to its preservation qualities, the lingonberry has played an import role in Finnish food culture. Lingonberries have traditionally been preserved as purées and jams and used, for example, in porridges and as a condiment with meat dishes. There are numerous ways to make different purées alone: the lingonberries can be preserved whole or crushed, with sugar or without.

The tartness of lingonberries works well to flavour up bread. Lingonberries also provide a fresh flavour to pies and other desserts. Powdered and coarsely ground dry lingonberries are excellent as additions to porridges, smoothies, homemade muesli and raw food bars. The following are a few lingonberry recipes, both traditional and a bit more modern, to try out.
