Wild Lingonberry Compote
Wild Lingonberries (Vaccinium vitis-idaea), also called mountain cranberries and partridgeberries, grow in remote areas from southern Labrador to the Queen Charlotte Islands. They also grow in Scandinavia where they are known as Lingonberries. They are an absolutely spectacular fruit that many prefer to the regular cranberry. Because they are sharp but not sour, our preserved mountain cranberries can be used as a delicious spread on toast, as a condiment with chicken or turkey. Some chefs combine it with mayonnaise for sandwiches, other use it in a sauce for game and other meats.
