Vossenbesinfusie (Vaccinium vitis-idaea)
Grooming fur is a long process for a polar bear who needs to be polished and neat for Christmas festivities. The help of lingonberries is much appreciated, reviving the skin with antioxidant vitamins C and E. Be the most good-looking bear at the party!
The vaccinium genus includes more than 450 species, including many little shrubs producing edible berries like cranberries and blueberries. The lingonberry is one of them, growing white bell flowers and scarlet berries. They are similar in colour and size to cranberries and have a very close bitter, tangy and sweet taste.
The berries are infused in-house in boiled water to obtain a red, sweet-smelling infusion.
