Lingonberry Jam 300gRegular price €6,95
Superbly sweet & slightly tart this jam made from treasured wild lingonberries, known as mountain cranberries in Romania is a delight. With a similar taste to the regular cranberry but slightly sweeter this jam pairs perfectly with both sweet and savoury dishes. Try it with a nutty Comte cheese and fresh apple, with roasted meats or simply with yoghurt or pancakes.
Lingonberries have a long history of use in traditional medicine, they are loaded with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Eating them can help work against infection, free radicals, help strengthen the bone system and support the cardiovascular and urinary systems.
The medicinal plants and fruits that are used as ingredients for the products made by Măgură Monastery are collected from the spontaneous flora of the surroundings of the monastery, in the area of the Cindrel Mountains or are grown in the monastery's herb garden. The entire process, from picking, drying, shredding, preparation, packaging and labelling, is done by hand. Their recipes are their own and are based on old traditional and monastic remedies. The preparation processes aim to preserve the natural properties of the plants and fruits used.
