Cloudberries are a favorite natural treat of the Nordic countries because they are abundant, nutritious and tasty on waffles, toast, and soft cheese. The preserves can even be warmed to serve as a special topping to vanilla ice cream! Each of these cloudberries have been picked by hand from the bogs of Sweden's northern forests, where they grow wild and ripen under the arctic summer sunlight. The golden berries are sweet and slightly tart and taste as heavenly and dreamy as their name, "cloudberries," sounds.

I had never tasted cloudberry preserves, and so I was interested in trying it. The flavor is this jam is fine although not particularly distinctive. The overall impression is just that it is sweet and a decent topping for toast. What I disliked, however, is that there are fairly large seeds in the jam. Clearly, the fruit is similar in form to raspberries and blackberries, although much lighter in color. Like raspberries and blackberries, there are seeds, although the seeds in cloudberry jam are far larger. This made eating these preserves less enjoyable.

This is a very unique Scandinavian treat that is great in oatmeal, toast, or to make pastries and cakes!
