Norwegian foragers are currently celebrating a record crop of berries.
One forager was thrilled to pick over 100 litres of blueberries, compared to a standard haul of five! And, as for the famous cloudberries, 2013 has seen the largest haul since 1960, with the best ever crop of lingonberries also reported.
Needless to say, this excess of ingredients is exciting news for dessert lovers. Incredible dishes such as Scandinavian Cloudberry Layer Cake and stock favourites such as blueberry pie should be in abundance this winter - so it’s seconds on the pudding all round!
