White Chocolate is the KEY
The lingonberries and cloudberries were made into pies, the Finnish way.
When I was thinking about what to do with the blueberries, Juhani told me that a pie would definitely be good, and that it would taste better with white chocolate. After all, it’s best to listen to the local people about local products.
