Swedish Meatballs and Rosettes
When I take a trip to IKEA, I’m specifically thinking about jam, jelly, marmalade and preserves. More to the point; Sylt Apelsin & Fläder Orange/Elderflower Marmalade, Sylt Krusbär- Gooseberry Jam, Sylt Hallon & Blåbär- Raspberry and Blueberry Jam and Sylt Lingon- Lingonberry Preserves.
The Lingonberry is a key ingredient in the Scandinavian diet. Lingonberries are a rich source of Vitamin C, an important vitamin necessary during the long winters in Scandinavian countries. Lingonberries are small, red, edible berries that grow on a perennial woody, evergreen shrub with a low growth habit. The lingonberry is related to both the blueberry and cranberry.
Lingonberries are native to Scandinavia, Alaska and Northeastern Canada, similar to cranberries but not quite as tart. Use the lingonberry in jam, jelly, preserves, juice, sauce, wine and liqueurs. Lingonberries can be used in any recipe that calls for cranberries or blueberries. Lingonberries also go by the names: cowberry, red whortleberry, foxberry, rock cranberry and partridge berry.
The next time you stop at IKEA pick up an extra jar of Lingonberry Preserves. Then when you get home you can make this recipe for Lingonberry Cheesecake. With the popularity of stores like IKEA, Swedish Meatballs, Lingonberries and Scandinavian cooking in general is once again making a big come back. Thank goodness because Swedish Meatballs, the Lingonberry and the like are wonderful.
