Small Batch Lingonberry Jam is a necessity in any Swedish household and this tastes just like store-bought without refined sugar. No holiday or Swedish meal would be complete without lingonberry jam. Incredibly this is just a small batch so no water bath canning needed. If you have ever canned then you know exactly how much work that is. Needless to say, I love that I don’t have to clean up a large mess afterward. Just make and store in the fridge.
More importantly, I am pretty sure every Swede or Scandinavian has lingonberry jam in their pantry. All the lingonberry jams on the market have refined sugar in them. Which means I have had to create my own. In America, it is hard to find fresh or even 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, or when we eat Swedish Meatballs. But, I regress.
Small Batch Lingonberry JamNotes:
Therefore, I created Small Batch Lingonberry Jam at Christmastime because I had to have it on my table or it just wouldn’t have been Christmas, Midsummer, or any Scandinavian holiday without them. You see my family celebrates all the Scandinavian holidays (well almost). We, therefore, celebrate 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.
As a matter of fact, Small Batch Lingonberry jam goes perfect with poultry, pork, beef, or even seafood. Either way, it is the ideal side dish to any dish or even dessert. This recipe is low in carbs and refined sugar-free. If you have never had lingonberries they are similar to cranberries but are much smaller. However, they do have a tart taste to them just like the cranberries. Needless to say, the sweet and tart flavor is perfect for Valentine’s day.
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, Lingonberry Panna Cotta or Soft Serve Vanilla Ice Cream.
