Lingonberry Lamb Pops
A couple of years ago I attended a menu preview at a local restaurant. One of the items on the menu was lamp lollipops. I remember this because it was the first time I had lamb in decades and it completely changed the way I thought about enjoying it.
The majority of the recipes I create are thought of in the middle of the night when I should be sleeping. I had been racking my brain trying to think of something a little bit different to make with the delicious Felix Lingonberry Jam that I received on the Mom Blog Tour at the Summer Fancy Food Show this past summer. Just like that my thoughts of the long ago lamb lollipops melded with the Felix Lingonberry Jam conundrum and I ended up with these Lingonberry Lamb Pops.
I participated in Mom Blog Tour at the Summer Fancy Food Show on behalf of Wendy’s Bloggers and received Felix products to facilitate my review. #MomBlogTour
I had never heard of the Lingonberry prior to the Mom Blog Tour. One of our favorite things to do as a family is to go berry picking here in New Jersey, so I was really intrigued to hear about how in Sweden the Swedes pick their own Lingonberries. Felix Lingonberries is the leading lingonberry jam in Sweden and the USA for over 50 years.
Felix Jam is made with fresh wild berries with no artificial ingredients or preservatives. The Dr. Oz TV show has recommended the jam as a super fruit, loaded with antioxidants. In 2016, it was a winner of a National Parenting Products Award (NAPPA).
