This is not your typical sweet jam recipe. Lingonberries are quite tart, which makes them perfect for a jam accompanying savory dishes (just like this vegan Schnitzel).

When I found fresh lingonberries at the farmer’s market, I just couldn’t resist. I love lingonberry jam, though I’ve never made it myself. I’m glad I gave it a try. I don’t use a lot of lingonberry jam, but it’s a must-have staple in my fridge. So it’s the perfect jam for small-batch cooking.

This vegan Lingonberry Jam is very simplistic (like pretty much most of my recipes) – with only 4 ingredients:

  • Lingonberries
  • Cranberry juice (for sweetness and balance)
  • Maple syrup (for a more subtle sweetness)
  • Chia seeds (helps with thickening)

Ingredients
 
 

  • 2 cups lingonberries , washed and cleaned
  • 1/4 cup cranberry juice
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon chia seeds

Instructions
 

  • Add lingonberries, cranberry juice and maple syrup to a medium-sized pot. Bring it to a boil, add the chia seeds and then let it simmer for about half an hour. Use a fork or potato masher to mash the lingonberries a bit. It should thicken up a bit, but it will thicken up even more in the fridge. At this point, you can try and adjust the sweetness by adding more maple syrup if you want!
  • To store it, let it cool off just a bit and fill it in an air-tight glass jar. You can store the jam in the fridge for 3-4 weeks!

Alternative to Lingonberry Jam

Not a fan of lingonberries? Or they are not available where you live? A quick and easy homemade cranberry sauce is a traditional, but ideal alternative for a festive dinner sauce/dip!
