A northern fruit chock-full of vitamins
The Montagnais word for this fruit means fire as the leaves turn a deep red come fall and light up the entire coastal plain. It is part of traditional dishes in all northern countries around the globe except ours where it is little known. Jams, pies, liqueurs and many other preparations are made with cloudberries.
In Quebec, the fruit is little known outside of its habitat but we are trying to change that. Our jam is as simple as possible: nothing but cloudberries and organic sugar.
As with many other northern fruit, cloudberries are an important source of anti oxydants and they also contain iron, Vitamins A and C among others.
