Cloud berries.

Anyone know where to find fresh cloud berries? The jam is readily available online, but I haven't been able to find fresh berries.

  1. The fresh berries are notoriously perishable. Your best bet would probably be a trip to Labrador or Quebec's Lower North Shore, both of which are cloudberry heaven.

    1. Thanks, that's what I thought. It'll make a nice weekend trip (and I can gourge myself on cloud berries).

      1. I pick them every summer in Newfoundland. Rodrigues winnery even sells cloudberry (aka bakeapple) wine!

          Oof--it's been nearly ten years, but I can still taste the cloudberry wine my old roommate and I got schmabled, totalled, drunk off one night.

          The flavour is so unique though, isn't it? I think it's making me wistful for more...

            I hear ya! Not exactly a bordeaux, but worth a try. Check out:


            They also have blueberry wine if you and your old roomate want a reunion!

        2. I was going to say Scandinavia (which woiuldn't have helped you much) I've always thought of them as a particularly Swedish (or Norwegian) thing and that's the only place I've ever eaten them fresh (with whipped cream) but I found this article which suggests they grown in many more places too

          Good luck finding some - Pete

          1. I had some in Finland...they are *extremely* fragile. Let us know if you find some....
