The golden berries grow high up in the mountains, among the bogs and the heather.

Sometimes they can be hard to find.

... dessert!

Many Norwegians enjoy this golden delicacy at Christmas and other special occasions.

You can eat them on their own, heat them up, use them as topping on vanilla ice cream or Norwegian waffles, or try Norway's traditional and delicious cloudberry cream.

Norwegian cloudberry cream

Ingredients: 

400 ml double cream

500 ml (250 g) cloudberries

3 tbsp. sugar


Source: Matprat.no

Method:

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!

Cloudberries ripen around August.

They grow in marshy terrain and humid mountain areas all over Norway.

Remember to bring along a container and some sugar in case you come across a patch when you go hiking.

Sweetened berries are a classic Norwegian hiking snack. Just mix in some sugar and enjoy!

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.
