    It works perfectly with pretty much anything that is eatable out there.

    Just kidding!

    Seriously though I don't think it's actually grown anywhere, it's just growing wild hence why it's a seasonable berry. You can put them in the freezer though to stack up during winter/off season.

    Nature, it scares you danes. lol

    The nerve is called the "nerve of awareness". You cant dissect it. Its a current that runs up the center of your spine. I dont know if any of you have sat down, crossed your legs, smoked DMT, and watch what happens... but what happens to me is this big thing goes RRRRRRRRRAAAAAWWW! up my spine and flashes in my brain... well apparently thats whats going to happen if I do this stuff...

    Never been a fan of cloudberries/hjortron, prefer raspberries/hallon. (English really does have some odd names for berries...)

    Cloudberries are great! Aside from the previous mentions of using it for waffles and stuff, you can also make a great sauce out of them.

    Our family regularly eats smoked salmon with cloudberry sauce every spring.

    Cloudberries? Is this from Care Bears? What shop in Care-a-Lot do I find this.

    Clouderry or in finnish: lakka, hilla, suomuurain, is a sour sweet berry. Here in Finland it grows wild on open bog (need sour ground to grow), nasty to gather when you can sink in to the ground + blood sucking bugs. Also need to be gathered by hand as the berry is soft when ripe, with just 1 berry per plant. Thus it's the most expensive wild berry around here. Pretty good with plain icecream and in birthday cakes and desserts.

    Not the sweetest of berries. Think I ate them about 20 times.
    Nothing can really beat hallon, jordgubbar, björnbär (look that up!).

    In Norway people have been threatened at gunpoint for picking cloudberries on someone elses land. And if you know of a good patch for cloudberries, you better keep it a well kept secret, because people go nuts over it.

    Hahah what southern voice, american?

    OT:
    I picked around 6kg of these this summer when i made hunting posts \o/ I know the perfect places, where the snow stay the longest/shadow areas, they come later than normal and it’s places where people don’t walk, as it’s hard/dangerous to walk (mountains).
    Anyway there are already «tips» in what you can use it with, but homemade Liqueur from cloud berries is awesome.. And cloud-berry jam mixed with cream to have with cookies etc. It's a family christmas tradition that my fam have done for a very long time^^

    Been in Norway a year.. Cloudberries are the best thing ever.. Also Brunost and Komle.

    I find cloudberries pretty "meh". Never had a jam made out of it, though.

    Cloudberries = Multebær = Hjortron!?

    Well.. Never heard of multebær (Cloudberries in Danish according to Google Translate), but Hjortron is lovely.

    The jars should have disclaimers about the number of pickers that were harmed or exploited during the harvest season though.

    Man I wouldn't trust Scandinavians in anything.

    It's considered a delicacy, but I'm not much for it myself. Can eat it but there are far tastier berries that also are not as commonly used (Rips, tyttebær) IMO :P

    Not all Scandinavians eat canned rotted fish. Also i hope you did not bring that on a plane, those cans can supposedly (or not) explode and crash the plane

    Edit: also sane people marinate their herring, cut it in bits, put it on bread [usually rye bread] possibly with curry salad [is that the name in english?] and stuff... serve with a nice glass of schnaps.

    Cloud berrys are not really "good" if you just pick them and eat them, you should make something with it, and its a whole diffrent story.

    Oww tyttebær "jam" with meatbals/ deer steak etc.. I want. I Couldn't pick them this summer due to them not being "ready" :/ "Rips" though, makeing liqueur from those aswell \o/
