Berry Time

Sitka Spruce cones among Low-bush Cranberries.

Among the last berries of the season in Southcentral Alaska are low-bush cranberries, or lingonberries. These little gems reach full ripeness in the latter part of September, just before the long, cold season arrives, and gathering them provides one more opportunity to enjoy the autumn outdoors. Once harvested, they make great relish or additions to a variety of baked goods…a tasty bounty that lasts all winter.
