Hafi or Nora brand CLOUDBERRIES (Rubus chamaemorus)


"The Gold of the Bogs"  The berry is picked at the end of July and the beginning of August. The cloudberry is sold fresh or made into jam and is also used in liqueurs and as a filling in sweets and chocolates. The berry is rich in vitamin C.   Medicinally the berry was eaten to combat gout and scurvy. The leaves can be made into a tea that aids digestive problems.

Two popular desserts are serving warm cloudberries (fresh or the jam) with ice cream or the extra special  whipped cream dessert with Multer (Cloudberries) which served all over Norway for Christmas dessert.
