Lingonberries, or low-bush cranberries, are tart, intensely flavorful, and nutritious. They are reported to be 30% higher in anti-oxidants than blueberries, with potential benefits for digestive ailments, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, infections, and even cancer. They are well known in Scandinavian countries as "lingonberries" and better known in Alaska as "low bush cranberries". They grow very low to the ground and in good berry years carpet the high tundra and forest floors in many parts of Alaska and Canada. Our jam contains 60% lingonberries, sugar, Alaska wildflower honey, and a bit of orange peel. No pectin in this jam, as lingonberries have enough natural pectin. Available in 3.7 oz and 6.3 oz jars. Note that our Low Bush Cranberry Sauce is also made with lingonberries and comes in a 9 oz. jar.
