I decided to try the Lingonberry Gingerbread. Lingonberries are a very tart small red berry which they Swedes adore. I'd never heard of them until I came to the upper Midwest... apparently we don't have enough Swedish-Americans in Pennsylvania. The gingerbread needed lingonberry jam and I knew just where to find some: Norske Nook. In fact, it was at the Nook that I had my first taste of lingonberries in one of their delicious pies. I made a quick drive to the Osseo one, because they have a larger gift shop and picked up a jar. The cake is moist, gingery, and (thanks to the lingonberry) a subtle tartness.
