If you are looking for a less sweet version of lingonberry jam – honey is the way to go. The sauce won’t last quite as long as the jam but if you seal it in glasses it should be good for a while.
It has a few more bitter notes than the jam but can be used the same way. Enjoy your hearty autumn dishes!


  • 1kg lingonberries
  • 6 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • vanilla extract [optional]

_ sort through the lingonberries [remove leaves and stems as well as rotten or dry berries]
_ place berries in a large pot and add water
_ simmer for about 10 to 15 minutes [stir often]

_ remove from heat and add vanilla and honey [the vanilla will help with the bitterness]
