Out of the main bustle of the Coffee shop this is where people gather to share recipes and tips/tricks.

Lingonberries

Our Danish friend made us a lovely dish yesterday, beef cooked with lingonberries. I have come across them before but never fresh. These were brought from Denmark by a relative. They are called airelles in France and are usually jarred and served with game.

Have you used them and can you get them where you are?

The only place I have actually seen any lingonberry products is Ikea but I mean to investigate Scandi Kitchen who have a cafė / shop on Great Titchfield Street near Oxford Circus and also sell mail order. They have fresh lingonberries - at a price.

The web site is not very low vision friendly but has some interesting looking recipes and info. I didn’t know that they were relatives of cranberries, but it makes sense.

I knew you lot would know!! I did know they are related to cranberries in fact Mr R thought they were cranberries he was eating,

You're right about that website Sue. I really had to concentrate to make sense of it.
