Lingonberries...

...No sewing at all for some days... but very nice weather for outdoor activities...
This weekend we took a trip to the woods to pick lingonberries...
as you can see on the pictures...Autumn has come a long way up here in the North of Sweden...some strong winds and the leaves will go...
...today I made some jam and it sure is lovely... sour and sweet at the same time... :)

Tomorrow I will have a posting about some Angelic matter...
so keep out Angel Story Members... :)

  4. I have been following you for a while, and found you through the stitching room.
    I have enjoyed all the lovely many parcels that you have received and the dolls and the beautiful sewing projects!
    Today however you touched off a deep memory for me, so i had to say hi!
    Lingonberry preserves, oh how it takes me back to my childhood! My Gran used to make a sorbet out of them, and OH how sweet and tart it was, but i loved it!
    thank you for the memory!

  5. Lingonberries....mmm never tried them but they sound delicious! I read about them in a historical fiction novel about a Swede newly immigrated to the US and he told his new US bride about his mothers mouthwatering lingonberry jam.
    Well now I know what they look like! The jar in the middle of your picture looks so nice, wish is were sitting on my shelf!

  9. I have a couple of jars of imported Lingonberries in the pantry right now. It is a must to have over Ostkaka, and rice pudding also. Yum. A son gave us a couple of bushes a few years ago but they didn't grow well here. Maybe we planted them in too much shade.
