In July it was time to pick some Hjortron (Cloudberries/Moltebeere). They are very special and only grow in more nordic climates.
Here you can find them in swampy areas with a lot of water in the ground – so exactly where all the mosquitoes are. When they are ripe, they become a golden tone and are very soft and squishy with a sweet taste that reminds me of honey. Due to the color they got their nickname „Norrlands guld“ and they truly look golden in the sun. When I took those pictures, the berries weren’t entirely ripe yet, but I think they were beautiful anyways.
I was so happy to have found that place with so many berries, but when I came back a week later to see if they were ripe yet, most of them were gone. So someone else was apparently faster than me in picking them. What a shame. Since then I have found many more places with Hjortron plants, but now it is too late to still pick them. For next year I have some more ideas on where to search for them when I want to pick them.
