Lingonberry aka Ikeaberry
If you're not from a Scandinavian country you'll probably only recognize the lingonberry as a sauce paired up with Swedish meatballs at the end of a long journey through Ikea. Fresh Lingonberries, however much they appear to be midget Cranberries, are a unique treat. They're related to both Cranberries and Blueberries but share more similarities with the former in taste and the latter in looks. Lingonberries are, at their core, a sweeter, less tart and slightly bitter Cranberry.
I'll be upfront, this is not the best Cranberry for the job but it does get the job done. At 3-3.5% it creates all the similarities you expect in a Lingonberry without overpowering the necessary and subtle nuances of the other ingredients. Any higher and it becomes too tart and lower and it disappears.
This brings in the Blueberry notes without the musky sock smell and provides some of the bitterness that's lacking in TPA Cranberry.
TPA Raspberry Sweet:
And of course this one brings the sweetness. In this case it brings just enough to make it more palatable than the real thing but not enough to lose the authentic lingonberry flavor.
