Crowberries are one of the Icelandic "fruits".
Well I know it´s a berry but in a land where you have trouble growing apples...... then those little things are like "diamonds" for us "vikings"..... They grow wild all around the country. Those small black berries are filled with and-oxidants, iron, vitamin C - just packed with nutrients. When I was young my parents always went berry picking in august. Always. And today I go with my girls. We make some yummie picnic out of it as well - food always taste better in the nature. It is so precious moments with my girls, having berry blue faces, most of the berries goes to their mouth...... and the smile is black/blue. :)
I will share some of our recipes.
