Lingonberries or Lingon Preserves in the East Bay

A friend brought me some delicious lingon (in a jar) from Sweden late last year. Where can one find lingonberries (preserved, nice and tart, not too sweet) in the East Bay? I know there was a thread a few years ago on this, but the recommended sources either no longer exist or no longer carry lingonberries. Thank you.

      Also great for Knäckebröd (cracker bread) and Elderflower syrup.

        Elderflower syrup! Thank you for the tip. I didn't know IKEA carried it and was going to try and make some myself (finding elderflowers being the key timing problem).

    2. I think Nordic House, which has moved to Berkeley, has a larger selection than Ikea.

        Yes, I bought a frozen tub of them there for $5 about 6 months ago. Not a bad price IMO.
        Cool store too...
