Lingonberries (sometimes known as cowberries) are a red, sour berry native to northern Eurasia. A classic ingredient in Swedish cooking, lingonberries are often made into a sweet-tart jam or a bright red liqueur. A favorite holiday ingredient, you can use lingonberries in a variety of ways - paired with buttered (gluten free!) toast for breakfast, over ice cream or in your favorite cocktail. Here are 3 of my favorite gluten free lingonberry recipes to let you fall in love with this little known berry!
