Lingonberries

I had my first experience with lingonberries. I was housesitting and came upon lingonberry jam in the fridge. Anyone ever heard of this kind of berry before? Apparently they're pretty popular in Scandanavia and Novia Scotia - I on the other hand went, "What kind of berry??"

The lingonberry, which is red and acidic, has a flavor similar to a cranberry. As a spread, they're surprisingly good, sweet but a little on the tart side (which I personally like in a jam/spread). Now that I've made this discovery, I've come to find lingonberry jam isn't particularly easy to come by, so I'm off to my organic market Friday in search of some.
