lingonberry

This tiny cowberry (a member of the cranberry family) grows wild in the mountainous regions of Scandinavia, Russia, Canada and—in the United States—Maine. The tart red berries are available fresh only in the regions where they're grown. They can be purchased as sweet sauces or preserves, however, and make excellent accompaniments for pancakes, crêpes, puddings, etc.
