Cloudberry on the plant

The cloudberry, also known as nordic berry, bakeapple, knotberry, aqpik, and averin/evron, is a fruit native to cool temperate, alpine, and arctic regions. It is amber-colored, soft, juicy, tart, and high in vitamin C.


Cloudberries are often made into jams, juices, tarts, and liqueurs.


In Finland, the berries are eaten with leipäjuusto, cream, and sugar. In Sweden, they are commonly used as a topping. In Norway, they are often mixed with whipped cream and sugar, or used to make ice cream.


In Canada, cloudberries are used in pies and jams. Yup'ik peoples mix them with fat to make akutaq.
