Cowberry, foxberry, mountain cranberry, and supplied by Swedish immigrants in America: lingberry, lingenberry, lingonberry (Vaccinium vitis-idaea). The only berry worth picking. All right – that's my opinion, please don't mail me to tell me that you disagree.

Foxberries are used for jam, boiled with sugar or just crushed with sugar and preserved by freezing. The berries contain a lot of benzoic acid, and the boiled jam is therefore easily conserved without freezing. Preferably the boiled type is eaten in small quantities with some meat dishes, notably traditional game meat dishes. (In the latter case some people prefer a jelly made from rowan berries.)
