The cloudberry season is short, so we Norwegians harvest while we can. Then we cleans and sweetens them before they are put in the freezer. Then they are taken out and enjoy at a suitable occasion. Many of us save at least one batch for the dessert on Christmas Eve because cloudberry cream is one of the absolute classics among Christmas desserts here in Norway.
As long as I celebrated Christmas with my parents this was the dessert we always had on Christmas eve – Ted
Cloudberry season is short, pick them while you can. Clean and sweeten them before you put them in the freezer. Take them out and enjoy at a suitable opportunity. If cloudberries are hard to come by round your neck of the wood the recipe works just as well for raspberries or blackberries.
