Lingonberry Sauce Recipe – Super Easy

I have always wanted to play around with Lingonberry Sauce, but never got around to it.  Mostly I think because I could never find them in the stores.  At least I couldn’t find a version of them that wasn’t already a jam.  So finally I decided I want to make this sauce for some fish so I went on the hunt.

Sorry for the terrible picture

First thing when your looking for these is that not every store will have them.  I went to Byerly’s and the first place I checked was the fruit section.  Nothing.  Then I thought maybe they are with the other frozen berries.  Nothing.  So I asked.  I was led over to the frozen poultry section, and between the frozen turkey’s and the frozen chickens, there were little deli containers with about a cup of frozen berries.  So I got them, time to make some sauce.


This recipe can’t be any easier.  Here’s what you need


1 Cup of Lingonberries

1/8 Cup to 1/4 Cup of Water

1/4 Cup of Sugar

1) The berries came cleaned so I just rinsed them off.

2) Put the berries in a saucepan and add the water.

3) Bring The Mix To A Boil

4) Add The sugar till it dissolves.  Let it simmer for about 10 minutes. I stirred it frequently.

5) Remove from heat.  You can put the pan in cold water and stir for about 2 minutes.  This really seemed to thicken it up.   Since its Winter, I actually just took the pan outside and threw it in the snow.  It felt more Minnesotan!

6) Enjoy


I used it on fish. I will post that later!
