The golden berries grow high up in the mountains, among the bogs and the heather.
Sometimes they can be hard to find.
But sometimes you can get lucky and find a big patch full of berries.
If you do, there's good reason to celebrate. These golden berries taste as good as they look!
Expect a strong and "wild" flavour, that's both sweet and tart. They make the perfect ...
Norwegian cloudberry cream
This dessert is so easy to make, that even the least experienced cook will succeed!
1. Mix the sugar in with the cloudberries.
2. Whip the double cream, and gently fold the berries into the stiffly whipped cream.
Serve on its own, or together with some tasty, traditional Norwegian Christmas cookies, such as krumkaker!
If you want to experiment more with cloudberries in the kitchen, you should try former Bocuse d'Or silver winner, Tom Victor Gausdal's cloudberry sorbet recipe!
The only place in Norway where you are not permitted to pick wild cloudberries is on clearly marked private land in Northern Norway, a region where the berries are particularly abundant.
Hurry before someone else picks them!
But don't worry, you can also find them in a far more accessible place, all year round: Just head for the freezer at any Norwegian grocery store.
