Edmonton - Lingonberries
Anyone have any idea where I can get some fresh, frozen or even partially processed?
I checked Alberta Ag's site and I don't see any local producers listed unless they're using the term wild cranberry instead of lowbush cranberry. Apparently most lingonberries aren't cultivated but wild. http://www.agric.gov.ab.ca/app21/rtw/... Lingonberries go by a bunch of common names - this info is dated but still helpful in that respect: http://www.prairie-elements.ca/lingon...
I know Ikea sells Lingonberry products - jam/sauce, but that's probably more processed than you were looking for. http://www.ikea.com/ca/en/search/?que...
I remember seeing them at one of the farmers' markets -- I think downtown. But only for one week.
You may want to check the alta gov web site for market gardens, they show what is in season at the u pick places.
You could have come to Saskatchewan or went to northern Alberta sometime in the last month and picked them or paid a hilarious 35 bucks for an ice cream pail of them.
