Being Swedish, meatballs and jam are almost as important as pickled herring in my family. I found this good recipe for Swedish Meatballs and Lingonberry sauce that is very similar to the one my grandmother brought with her from Stockholm when she moved to the United States. Granted, this recipe uses pre-made lingonberry jam, I would imagine that it would be even better with fresh-made jam! Here’s the link to the recipe, with instructions! Enjoy! CA Arizona

I visited Krristiansted, Sweden and Stockholm a few years ago, and at a fast food stand, everyone in my group ordered different things. Most everybody else went for the burgers and fries. I chose Swedish meatballs. The server asked me if I wanted lingonberry sauce and I said. “Sure!” I thought it would be put on the meatballs, but it was poured over the mashed potatoes! What a surprise and so delicious!
