Swedish Lingonberry Jam is a necessity in any Swedish household and taste just like store-bought just without refined sugar. Incredibly this is just a small batch so no canning needed. Just make and store in the fridge.
I am pretty sure every Swede has lingonberry jam in their pantry. All the lingonberry jams on the market have refined sugar in them. Which means I have to create my own. In America, it is hard to find fresh or frozen lingonberries. I first had to find lingonberries. Once I found them the next step was to create a lingonberry recipe. I don’t know what I would do without lingonberry jam if I didn’t have it for my Christmas smorgasbord. I know it wouldn’t feel like Christmastime to me. But, I regress.
I created Keto Swedish Lingonberry Jam at Christmastime because I had to have it on my table or it just wouldn’t have been Christmas without them. You see my family celebrates Christmas on Christmas Eve the way they do in Sweden. Yep, we even open presents and I make a Swedish Smorgasbord for dinner. That is our tradition. I and had some leftover lingonberry jam and wanted to use it up. I wanted something to remind me of Sweden. That’s when I came up with this recipe for dessert. If you have never had lingonberries they are similar to cranberries but are much smaller. But they do have a tart taste to them just like the cranberry.
Use this recipe on toast, ice cream, pancakes or as an accompaniment to dinner much like cinnamon apples. Goes well with pork or Swedish meatballs. Incredibly I was able to find frozen lingonberries on the internet. I purchased mine here. Use with Swedish Pancakes, Paleo Lingonberry Panna Cotta or Soft Serve Vanilla Ice Cream or LaRena’s Crusty European Style Bread
