Ingredients

  • About a dl of cleaned Reindeer moss.
  • About a dl of lingonberry leaves (or other berrys.)
  • A handful of spruce needles (for you Americans, black Spruce I guess.)

Directions

Mix Them up and boil until the water turns yellow-green.

taste good when served with a roasted Vendace (Coregonus Albula).


WARNING: I'we heard rumors about spruce needles causing unwanted abortions for pregnant women, I'm unsure about black Spruce and Scandinavian Norway Spruce, but DON'T TAKE ANY RISKS!
