  • 2.2 pounds Lingonberries fresh
  • 1 cup Water
  • cups Sugar


  • Wash your Lingonberries and pick out any impurities. Natural lingonberries usually don't have insects and worms in them (compared to raspberries) so the washing should be quick. Weigh the berries and place them into a big cooking pot.

  • Add the 200 milliliter water to the berries in the pot and cook on low heat for about 10 minutes. Mix frequently, the fruits will get a bit softer by cooking them first because lingonberries are hard.

  • Cook on slow heat for about 40 mins, while stirring at times, until you can see a rolling boil. At that point the jam should be ready and you can take it from the heat. Test if the jam is set by dropping some on a cold plate, the jam is ready if it doesn't run. If it runs, keep for some more time to cook on low heat and repeat the test until you have the correct consistency.
