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