Troll Cream I (Trolkrem I)

Today, of course, we use electric mixers to make the magical troll cream. You may substitute chopped cranberries for the lingonberries, but be sure they are very ripe, and adjust sugar accordingly.

2 cups (5 dl) lingonberries (see picture), or
1/2 cup (1 1/4 dl) lingonberry jam
2/3 cup (1 1/2 dl) sugar
2 egg whites, from large eggs

Wash berries and remove all unripe berries and foreign objects. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and beat until the volumes quadruples. about 15 minutes. If you are using lingonberry jam, omit sugar. Serve in a crystal dessert bowl sprinkled with a few lingonberries. If available, add a few mint leaves. Cookies are a great accompaniment, or serve in Crisp Wafer Cups

Troll Cream II (Trollkrem II)

A different kind of troll cream combining the lingonberries with currants and strawberries, and topping it off with vanilla sauce.

1 1/2 cups (3-4 dl) lingonberries or
1 cup (2 1/2 dl) red currant plus 1/2 cup (1 1/4 dl) strawberries or raspberries
1 cup (2 1/2 dl) sugar
2 egg whites
